The New Order National Human Rights Organization (NONHRO) is a 501 (c) 3 GA Nonprofit Organization led by a unique and diverse group of courageous, hardworking and talented people. Our administration, board members and advisors have distinct roles but work toward the same goal: to advance the mission of NONHRO. Every person affiliated with the organization brings with them a commitment to creating and sustaining a diverse and inclusive environment.
NONHRO exist to monitor unjust activity, investigate misconduct complaints, work to change policies, lobby for legislative changes, encourage independent citizen review boards nationally and advocate for citizens. New Order's involvement in human rights began in 1992 in Toledo, Ohio on June 24, 1992, with Mr. Gerald Rose, Founder and President forming a black unity group called the Council of New Order at a rally in the Mott Branch of the Toledo-Lucas County Public Library, Toledo, Ohio. What started with 6 members over time has built a strong unit nationwide.
Originally planned as a workshop to help solve urban violence the unity group grew into what is known today as The New Order National Human Rights Organization. Mr. Rose is the proud son of Reverend Floyd Rose of Valdosta, Georgia, a former civil and human rights activist in Toledo, Ohio.
"Nonviolence is the answer to the crucial political and moral question of our time-the need for man to overcome oppression and violence without resorting to violence and oppression." "One has not only a legal but a moral responsibility to obey just laws. Conversely, one has moral responsibility to disobey unjust laws..... One who breaks an unjust law must do so openly, and lovingly and with a willingness to accept the penalty."
THE ROSE LEGACY CONTINUES
By Gerald Rose
“No matter where I roam, Toledo Ohio will always be my home,” because that is the birthplace of the Rose Legacy.
I learned about the injustices of the world at an early age and inherited my activism skills from my dad, the renowned Toledo, Baptist preacher and former president of the NAACP, Reverend Floyd Rose.
He also taught me truth, honesty and hard work, which is what made me want to fight for people whose rights were being violated and who couldn't fight for themselves.
I became an activist and formed a New Order Chapter in Toledo Ohio in 1992 and hit the ground running. I started working in the community, holding local rallies at the Toledo Lucas County Public Library calling for black unity.
The Toledo Ohio chapter began growing rapidly and was soon fully operational with local events for the community and was completely staffed so I felt it was time to expand our services to help more people. What better place than the birthplace of the civil rights movement, Atlanta, Ga.
I decided to set up a chapter In Atlanta. So, in June, 2000 I moved to Georgia to set up the New Order Atlanta Chapter. The Atlanta New Order National Human Rights Chapter has grown extensively.
I immediately started working on some very high-profile cases, like the Mike Vick case, Sandra Bland case, Renardo Lewis/ case/James Craig Anderson case and many more throughout the United States.
I was mentored directly by Joseph Lowery, Martin Luther King III and other great Leaders in Atlanta. I have a huge talk radio station called Real Talk with New Order where I host a huge list of local celebrities and state officials and a weekly podcast. I now have a staff members in Atlanta and throughout the United States .We take an average of 10 complaint cases a month and we are currently in talks of researching for a third location to establish another Chapter.
