    The Jharkhand Unit based in Ranchi, was established in 2007 to fight for justice for tribal, Dalit, women and the poor. The Jharkhand Unit works on all HRLN Initiatives but the major emphasis is on women and adivasis.

    Given the natural resource and mineral rich make-up of the state, HRLN Jharkhand is one of the most active units working on forest rights and related issues of displacement, environmental degradation and workers’ rights.

    Additionally, the unit addresses issues such as rape, sexual exploitation, domestic violence, property rights, torture, human trafficking and migration. It also plans to take more land rights issues, PILs on issues related to environment. Lukewarm efforts by the government to implement the Witchcraft Prohibition Act, 2001, has prompted HRLN Jharkhand to take a lead in protecting women who have suffered physical and mental torture for being branded as witches by a society where superstitions still run deep.
