The head of the Human Rights Action Center is Jack Healey, the world-renowned human rights activist and pioneer.
An effective and innovative leader in the human rights movement for over 25 years, Jack helped move the topic of human rights from closed-door diplomatic negotiations to widespread awareness, public debate, and direct citizen action. Colleagues credit him with making human rights a major focus of governments, advocacy organizations, and individuals around the world.

Called "Mr. Human Rights" by U.S. News and World Report, Jack brought human rights to the global stage by his creative use of media and enlistment of world-class musical talent as advocates and spokesperson.

As Executive Director of Amnesty International USA for 12 years, he pioneered new ways to reach youth - the next generation - to deliver the message of human rights. A few events he created include:

- Conspiracy of Hope tour with U2, The Police, Peter Gabriel, and many others.
- Human Rights Now! tour with Bruce Springsteen, Sting, Peter Gabriel, Tracy Chapman, and Youssou N'Dour.
- From a Hug to a Hope two-day concert in Chile with Peter Gabriel, Sting, Sinead O'Connor, Jackson Browne, Ruben Blades, and Wynton Marsalis.
- Free to Laugh two-hour show in honor of women's rights featuring Vanessa Williams, Anjelica Huston, Roseanne, and Lily Tomlin.

Today, Jack heads the Washington, D.C. based Human Rights Action Center (HRAC), a qualified non-profit 501(c)(3) organization.

In addition to his public speaking engagements and support of fellow grassroots human rights organizations, Jack is an advisor to the U.S. government in regards to establishing sound human rights policies in other countries.
