Who we are


From our roots in Myanmar to our present day work in Thailand’s Deep South, CrCF has spent decades fighting social discrimination in the judicial system.

Who we serve

CrCF works with political activists, human rights defenders, and marginalized communities.

We serve the victims and survivors of torture, enforced disappearance, and abuse at the hands of authorities.
These are often political activists, human rights defenders, and underserved populations, like religious and ethnic minorities, women, and the LGBTQ community. Sometimes, they’re people who were in the wrong place at the wrong time or who unintentionally offended the state.
We also serve and support the family members of victims, many of whom become vocal human rights advocates.

We are working towards a future in which all people are free from fear, discrimination, and oppression.


Cross Cultural Foundation works across sectors of society to protect human rights and seek justice for the oppressed.


There are four core beliefs that guide our work


All people deserve to be treated with dignity and respect, and no one should suffer economic or political discrimination.

Legal and procedural fairness

Laws should be fair, and justly applied to all people.

State accountability

The role of the state is to protect all people and uphold their fundamental rights. We hold them accountable.


People are inclined to do right and choose justice. We work to bridge the cultural gaps that hinder their empathy.

Service areas

We take a systemic approach to our works.

We have refined our service areas over many years so that each improves the others to create a positive feedback loop.


We provide legal aid and support for victims of torture, enforced disappearance, and abuse at the hands of authorities. We also aid and support the families of victims.


We work with lawmakers, media, and the public to shape and advance policies that protect people from unjust and inhumane treatment—for example, torture and enforced disappearance.


We use various forms of public outreach—including art, films, events, and informational panels—to teach people about their legal rights and expose abuses of power.
