Voices for Justice newsletter Though less well known than its counterpart, Amnesty International, Human Rights Watch is one of the world’s principal human rights organisations. Human Rights Watch represented a merger in the 1990s of Helsinki Watch and other similar organisations. It was founded with US philanthropic support to spotlight human rights abuses in particular areas of the world. This package is an excellent example of a legacy society newsletter, with its special focus on the mission-based activities that constitute true donor motivation. - Mal Warwick
