Support human rights defenders
Human rights do not exist without the work of human rights defenders. They exist because the concerned individuals and groups dare to speak out, to challenge the authorities and challenge injustice. Most of this work is invisible. It's a constant battle against increasing repression. The daily work of human rights defenders is hard, sometimes dangerous, but always necessary.

Every individual can make a change. No matter your age, gender, beliefs, education, profession, social situation or background. It doesn’t matter at what scale. You are a potential change maker, willing to help others. We are all human rights defenders.
