Are we all human rights defenders?
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. Are you joining us?
All over the world there are peaceful change makers who belief in equality, freedom of thought and expression, the rights of refugees or a healthy environment. They’re helping others or demanding change on the local level.
These peaceful change makers are called rebels, activists, heroes, troublemakers, dissidents, free spirits, idealists, radicals, eccentrics, revolutionaries, rioters, sometimes even traitors or enemies of the state.
We call them human rights defenders.
