The Legacies for Justice Society recognizes and thanks supporters who have made estate plans or established life-income gifts to benefit Human Rights Watch. Membership in the Legacies for Justice Society is bestowed without regard to gift level, as each commitment represents a lifetime pledge to Human Rights Watch that expresses both the desire for a world that is just and the future of what is possible through philanthropy.
