Let's stand together for human rights.
Around the world, the rights of people just like you are at risk. People are imprisoned, persecuted, abused, and exploited, suffering crimes against humanity and violations of human rights. Now is the time to take action.
Regardless of nationality, race, sex, religion, or language, every human deserves the same basic and unalienable rights. We believe this to be true, but human beings still suffer discrimination, violence, exploitation, and abuse every day in every country around the world. Some are persecuted for their beliefs while others are unlawfully imprisoned and tortured. Children are exploited, women are treated unfairly, and people with disabilities are denied the same opportunities that we all deserve without question. We need to stand together and advocate for human rights, worldwide.
The facts about human rights are staggering and depressing, to the tune of human rights abuses in 159 countries and territories worldwide, according to Amnesty International. And these cover just the abuses that Amnesty recorded and investigated in 2012. There is no telling how many more instances of torture, violence, and other crimes against humanity were not observed and how many victims are still suffering in silence.
Often, victims of human rights violations can't stand up for themselves. They are imprisoned for speaking up or fearful of what might happen to them if they try to enact change. So many victims are children, their voices squashed before they even have a chance to use them. These people need our help. By advocating for human rights, we can make a difference. We can give a voice to the hundreds of thousands of men, women, and children who are persecuted, imprisoned, abused, displaced by war, or exploited.
By standing together and advocating for human rights, we can create a kinder, gentler, more inclusive world. Join our community and contribute to a sea change in our culture. We can put an end to human rights violations.
