Human Rights Need You!

Whether you have five minutes to take a quick action right now, you’re looking for a way to get more involved in your community, or anything in between, we need you to speak up, show up, and stand up for human rights today.

Together, we are a powerful force demanding that everyone’s human rights be protected. Check out the options below to get started!

Online Petitions

Sign and share our priority online petitions. Our petitions and urgent email actions are sent directly to decision-makers and create results. You can also create momentum for change after signing our actions by participating in our social media messages and responding to our invitations to get more involved.
