Who We Are

International Rights Advocates promotes human rights and corporate accountability through legal advocacy and capacity building.

IRAdvocates dates back to the late 1980’s when the organization operated as the litigation department of the International Labor Rights Forum (ILRF).  Terry Collingsworth, the Executive Director of IRAdvocates, was formerly General Counsel and later Executive Director of ILRF.  In 2007, Mr. Collingsworth and the ILRF legal team formed IRAdvocates, a separate entity focused on litigation against U.S. corporations for human rights violations committed abroad.
