Human Rights Internet (HRI) is a non-governmental organization based in Ottawa, Canada, that supports the exchange of information within the worldwide human rights community. Launched in the United States, in 1976, as Internet: the International Human Rights Documentation Network it originally used the term Internet for the concept of an international network of human rights organizations. HRI receives government funding from the Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA) to provide a website for human rights partners (activists, educators, groups, organizations and NGOs) that are unable to maintain their own websites.
