08 Stockholm Human Rights is a basketball team in Stockholm, based in Alvik.

The team was created in 1996 by five separate basketball clubs in Stockholm (Alvik BK (established 1956),[1] KFUM Blackeberg, KFUM Central, KFUM South (established 1949)[1] and KFUM Järfälla which today no longer participate in it), to create a strong club with equal conditions for all.[2][3]

The name for 08 Stockholm was chosen as Human Rights as a result of the club's commitment to using basketball as a tool to combat racism.[1]

Since the team bagan, it has had a team represented in the top two leagues in Sweden; Basketligan (men) and Damligan (ladies). In 2001, the team were SM-gold for both leagues. As of 2004, the club had (including its parent clubs) won 38 senior SM-gold awards.[2]

As of 2004, it is Sweden's largest single sports organization.[2]

The team's general manager is Kevin Ryan.[4]
