What is Grassroots Defender's Network?

Grassroots Defenders Network (GRADENET) is an association of Human Rights Defenders comprised of individuals, groups, and organizations working in grassroots communities of Uganda.

At GRADENET, we strive for the realization of human rights according to the Ugandan Constitution of 1995 and other national, regional and international Human Rights Mechanisms that allow citizens the Freedom to Assemble, Associate and Express themselves in the defense of civil liberties and freedoms.

GRADENET members are Human Rights Defenders working at the grassroots. GRADENET membership is open to all grassroots Human Rights Defenders and Activists regardless of sex, gender, race, sexual orientation, and economic status.

Our members include countless individuals, lawyers, women activists, community leaders, journalists, media producers, unionists and environmentalists and organizations who strive to reclaim rights and advocate for the promotion of freedoms, educating and raising awareness of situations and holding governments to account for their actions.
