RightsInfo is delighted to welcome Alex Feis-Bryce as our new CEO, who will play a vital role in taking the charity to the next level.
Previously the Founding Chief Executive of National Ugly Mugs, a charity which supports sex workers when they become victims of crime, Alex was instrumental in their journey to become a multi-award winning national organisation.
As well as supporting thousands of sex workers through their work, Alex made significant contributions to local and national policy in the area, advising the Home Office, National Crime Agency and the Home Affairs Select Committee.

“I’m absolutely delighted to be given this opportunity to lead RightsInfo into the future,” Alex commented. “Especially at a time when our work is needed more than ever.”
“We’re a young organisation with very bold ambitions and I’m really excited to work with such a dynamic and talented team.”
RightsInfo are already changing this narrative, informing people of their rights and challenging misconceptions.
Speaking about the importance of RightsInfo’s work, he added: “Human rights are essential to protect us against injustice and make our society more equal, but, despite this, negative media reporting has led to a large proportion of the public being either hostile or neutral about human rights.
“RightsInfo are already changing this narrative, informing people of their rights and challenging misconceptions – and I’m determined to play my part in developing our organisation and maximising our impact at this crucial time.”

Alex was also personally shortlisted at the Charity Times Awards for Rising Star CEO, as well as the Influencer Award at the DSC Social Change Awards. Most recently he’s worked as an advisor to Ed Miliband, focusing on tackling inequality and his podcast Reasons to be Cheerful.
In an increasingly unstable world, human rights are under threat more and more. With our excellent staff team, I’m confident Alex will take RightsInfo to the next level.
