Meta launches Human Rights Defender Fund and Journalist Safety Initiative

Meta has announced the launch of Human Rights Defender Fund and Journalist Safety Initiative for Asia Pacific. This initiative is designed to support individuals who are targets of harassment, persecution and / or prosecution because of their activities in support of human rights. This includes members of vulnerable groups advocating for their rights, such as professional and citizen journalists, non-violent political activists, and any member of the public who raises a human rights concern.

The fund will help pay for new devices and security technologies, temporary relocation, and emergency legal and safety assistance. It will also be used to provide mental health support to human rights defenders and journalists.
