Social Justice and Human Rights Defender


A human rights defender and social justice champion, Sen. Leila M. de Lima remains unjustly detained to this day (1259 days and counting) for speaking truth to power. 

Even as she faces false drug charges filed against her by the government without any material evidence and primarily on the basis of perjured testimonies of convicted criminals, De Lima remains unbowed. 

With truth on her side and global institutions behind her, De Lima keeps on fighting for her innocence while serving the Filipino people.


Senator Leila M. de Lima advocates for a government that is truly accountable to its people.

During these dark and uncertain times when democracy and the rule of law are being trampled upon, she remains an outspoken voice of the opposition.

As she offers legislative solutions to national issues consistent with human rights and social justice advocacy, De Lima enjoins every Filipino to promote responsible citizenship anchored on respect, integrity, and dignity for all.
