Abstract: The SASKATICHEWAN ASSOCIATION ON HUMAN RIGHTS (SAHR) is a non-profit voluntary organization of individuals, families and organizations throught Saskatchewan. It is not a government agency;its political base rests in the United Nations Univeral Declaration of Human Rights. SAHR does, however, work with government organizations such as the Ombudsman and the Saskatchewan Human Rights Commission, and investigates and arbitrates complaints falling outside the legal jurisdiction of other bodies.
The ASSOCIATION has limited resources; it has chosen social action and public education as its prioirities. It publishes a newsletter, pamphlets and other printed resources, builds coalitions to promote solidarity between oppressed people, and supports the activities of self-help groups.
