Task Force Detainees of the Philippines (TFDP) was established by the Association of Major Religious Superiors of the Philippines (AMRSP) in 1974. The group was tasked with documenting and assisting political prisoners during Martial Law. Beginning as a Catholic response to political detention under Marcos, Sr., its members would go on to help establish other human rights organizations, such as Families of Involuntary Disappearance (FIND), Samahan ng Ex-Detainees Laban sa Detensyon at Aresto (SELDA) (an organization of ex-political detainees), KAPATID (an organization of families of political prisoners), and Mothers and Relatives Against Tyranny and Oppression (MARTYR). During the term of President Corazon Aquino, TFDP helped build the largest human rights alliance in the country – the Philippine Alliance of Human Rights Advocates (PAHRA).
