Giving Day 2020

Giving Day is a 24-hour fundraising drive that supports UC Santa Cruz students. This Giving Day, Wednesday, September 30, 2020, you can support our students engagement by supporting the RCA's Human Rights Investigations Lab.

Launched in fall 2019, the Human Rights Investigations Lab is dedicated to offering digital verification support to non-governmental organizations, news outlets, and other advocacy partners that are conducting open source investigations. Housed in the Research Center for the Americas (RCA) at UC Santa Cruz, this lab harnesses digital technologies to address and confront human rights violations.
This Giving Day, we are raising funds for virtual workshops with leading professional investigators and trainers to teach advanced open source methods to our Lab members. These trainers will give our 25 student investigators the opportunity to expand their skills and deepen their knowledge on how to conduct a human rights investigation so that they will be able to accept more complicated human rights cases on behalf of our human rights partners. ‎Please mark your calendar and support the RCA on Giving Day!
Our goal is to raise $3,000 to bring three or four trainers to UC Santa Cruz. Thank you for your support!
