Are we all human rights defenders?

Join the movement

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 with your own means. We are all human rights defenders. Join the movement, follow us.

All over the world there are peaceful change makers who belief in equality, freedom of thought and expression, the right to education or a healthy environment. They’re helping others or asking for 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.
