The Dignity for All: LGBTI Assistance Program is a consortium of eight leading human rights and LGBTI organizations that provides emergency assistance, advocacy funding, and security support to human rights defenders and civil society organizations under threat or attack due to their work for LGBTI rights.


Since 2012, Dignity for All has provided emergency assistance grants to human rights defenders and civil society organizations in 77 countries and territories.


To qualify for emergency assistance, applicants must be under attack because of their work for LGBTI people or communities. Civil society organizations do not have to be officially registered to receive assistance but must be able to document at least six months of activism. Application inquiries should be sent to with detailed information describing why emergency assistance is needed. Emergency assistance applications can be submitted in English, Arabic, French, Chinese, Farsi, and Spanish.
