Our Mission

YHRJ aims to use Yale's platform and privilege to raise awareness about global human rights concerns. We also aim to be a model of what student activities should be, actively engaged in community service and a positive space for student mental health and exploring ones interests and passions with the help of a supportive network of fellow scholars.
