Jeri Laber

Jeri Laber (born 1931) is one of the founders of Human Rights Watch, the largest human rights organization in the United States. She is the author and/or editor of dozens of Human Rights Watch reports and more than 100 articles on human rights issues published in the ''New York Times'', ''The New York Review of Books'' and many other publications. Her memoir ''"The Courage of Strangers: Coming of Age with the Human Rights Movement"'' was published in 2002 by Public Affairs. She is co-author, with Barnett Rubin, of ''"A Nation is Dying: Afghanistan Under the Soviets,"'' Northwestern University Press.

In the course of her human rights work, Ms. Laber made many fact-finding trips to the former Soviet Union, Eastern Europe, Turkey and the Tribal Areas of Pakistan where she interviewed Afghan refugees. She offered friendship and moral support to dissidents in the former Communist countries, many of whom, after 1989, became the leaders of their newly democratic countries.

Ms. Laber was active in the early development of the human rights movement. She served as Executive Director of Helsinki Watch (which became Human Rights Watch) from 1978–1995 and then as Senior Adviser to Human Rights Watch until 2000. She was a founder of the International Helsinki Federation in 1983 and was its Vice-Chair for many years. She served as a consultant to the International Freedom to Publish Committee of the Association of American Publishers from 1977 to 2010.

Early in her career, Ms. Laber worked as Foreign Editor of ''The Current Digest of the Soviet Press'' and then as Publications Director of the Institute for the Study of the USSR. As a free-lance writer during the 1970s, she co-authored, with Molly Finn, ''Cooking for Carefree Weekends,'' Simon & Schuster, 1975, and co-edited, with Marion Cunningham, ''The Fannie Farmer Cookbook,'' Knopf, 1979. In 1977, she reviewed restaurants for the Connecticut supplement to the ''New York Times.'' Provided by Wikipedia
