Sport for Rights, a campaigning coalition that focuses on human rights violations in Azerbaijan, has renewed its partnership with social impact agency 89up. The partnership delivered a number of high-impact press articles across 6 countries globally in 2015, alongside ongoing press and media support for the coalition.

 

Padraig Reidy, the Director of Editorial at 89up said:


“I’m delighted that 89up is working with Sports for Rights again. Our work to highlight human rights violations in Azerbaijan could not be more important as the Aliyev regime routinely uses PR companies in the West to whitewash his regime. Last year, during the Baku European Games, we got the message out to some of Europe and USA’s biggest publications.”

89up is a social impact agency that specialises in PR for charities and NGOs. The company was founded in 2009 and has 12 staff and 15 associates in London and Barcelona.
