Stateless Dignity Project

What We Do

Our organization

The Stateless Dignity Project is a young organization, founded in April 2018 by international human rights lawyer and freelancer Ashley S. Kinseth.  With a team of four board members/volunteers, we work tirelessly to advance the mission of Stateless Dignity. Ultimately, we aspire to develop a robust roster of programs, each focused on providing advocacy and legal assistance to identified stateless groups around the world. 

Our work

Stateless Dignity works first and foremost to advocate for and advance the rights and human dignity of stateless persons and families around the globe.  As its first full-fledged Program, Stateless Dignity currently devotes the largest share of its resources to a stateless group that the UN has dubbed "the most persecuted minority in the world": the Rohingya.

At the same time, Stateless Dignity also keeps its finger on the pulse of other statelessness and related issues across the globe, with news and photography content more broadly devoted to advancing the causes of all stateless populations, particularly across all our social media platforms. We look forward to expanding our programming at the earliest opportunity to include other programs. 

In the very near future, Stateless Dignity also plans to launch a monthly newsletter, as well as a news and updates section. But in the meantime, to stay on top of the latest developments, we invite you to visit, follow, and/or like Stateless Dignity on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and LinkedIn.

The many ways you can help

We invite you to support our mission in any way you are able, be it financially or with your unique skills, time, energy—or even simple social media engagement! For more on the many ways to become involved, please see our Donate and Opportunities pages, as well as the above social media accounts.

Stateless Dignity also looks forward to expanding both our programming and staff at the earliest opportunity. We are thus seeking funding opportunities (such as grants) to enable growth. If you happen to come across any appropriate grants or foundations, we once again invite you to please contact us, as we would be deeply grateful.
