Human rights are standards that allow all people to live with dignity, freedom, equality, justice, and peace. Every person has these rights simply because they are human beings. They are guaranteed to everyone without distinction of any kind, such as race, color, sex, language, religion, political or other opinion, national or social origin, property, birth or other status. Human rights are essential to the full development of individuals and communities.
The “I am an Advocate for Human Rights” campaign builds on The Advocates’ name to engage people on an individual level to be part of the human rights movement, to see their work and their passions as essential human rights work, and to advocate for polices that respect human rights.
