Stateless Dignity Project

Stateless people are human beings. Let’s make sure they’re treated that way.

What We Do

Our organization

The Stateless Dignity Project is a young organization, founded in April 2018 by international human rights lawyer Ashley S. Kinseth.  With a dedicated and robust team of staff, board members, and volunteers, we work tirelessly to advance the organization’s mission. Focusing initially on the Rohingya Crisis and resulting statelessness, SDP ultimately aspires to develop a robust roster of programs, each focused on providing advocacy and direct support to identified stateless groups around the world. 

Our work

SDP works first and foremost to advocate for and advance the safety, rights, and basic human dignity of stateless persons and families around the globe.  As its first full-fledged Program, SDP 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, SDP 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, SDP 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 SDP on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and LinkedIn.
