Hungarian Human Rights Foundation (HHRF)

Since 1976, the Hungarian Human Rights Foundation (HHRF), initially the Committee for Human Rights in Romania, has been monitoring the human rights condition of the nearly four million Hungarians who live as minorities in the countries surrounding Hungary. A private, independent and not-for-profit 501(c)(3) corporation, HHRF operates from its New York headquarters and maintains offices in Budapest and Kolozsvár (Cluj), in addition to representatives in Washington, several other U.S. cities, Canada and Europe. In accordance with its purpose, HHRF regularly collects, translates, analyzes and disseminates reliable reports on the human rights conditions of these Hungarian minority communities. HHRF was at the forefront of the West's mounting concern and activity regarding the systematic campaigns of forced assimilation against minorities by the former communist regimes. Since 1989, HHRF's specific, although not exclusive focus remains the 2.5 million Hungarians in Romania, Europe's largest national minority. The organization regularly documents human rights violations in written and oral testimony before various Committees of the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives. Its other activities include participating in Helsinki Review Meetings, coordinating relief programs for Hungarians living in Romania and in the Vojvodina region of Yugoslavia, organizing meetings for Hungarian minority and other spokespeople with U.S. Government officials, and informing Hungarian-American voters of legislative issues affecting the minority populations.
