Freedom Now is a United States-based non-profit, non-partisan organization that seeks to facilitate representation for arbitrarily detained individuals who have neither used nor advocated violence and whose detention violates fundamental principles of international law. Its approach is to use focused legal, political, and public relations advocacy efforts designed to compel the release of individuals deprived of their liberty in violation of the rights and freedoms enshrined in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, and other international human rights instruments. A small organization with limited resources, Freedom Now works closely with other human rights organizations and lawyers to identify high-impact cases that would benefit from the organization's approach. Selected Campaigns, Freedom Now represents prisoners of conscience worldwide, including: Liu Xiaobo, and Gao Zhisheng (China), Dr. Oscar Elias Biscet (Cuba), Lapiro de Mbanga (Cameroon)
