9 simple ways you can protect human rights around the world - Wholesome Culture - Blog

Today marks the 70th anniversary of the International Human Rights Day!

On this day, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights – a document which sets fundamental human rights that need to be universally protected – was adopted, becoming one of the most significant declarations of the twentieth century.

So, let’s celebrate this important anniversary by standing up for equality, justice, and human dignity!

Here are 9 things that you can do to promote human rights.

  1. Spread the word on social media.

Social media can be a great tool when it comes to promoting human rights. Share a campaign update, a photo, or a quote – and inspire others to stand up for human rights, too.

  1. Sign a petition

Want to help make an important change towards justice and equality? Sign a petition! It only takes minutes – but could improve so many lives.

  1. Donate

Many human rights organizations accept and welcome people’s donations. If you want to see them continue their work with protecting human rights, show your support by making a small donation.

  1. Raise funds

Fundraising can be a fun and rewarding way to support a human rights cause! You could host a fundraising event (who doesn’t love a games night?!), a bake sale – or even sign up for a city run!

  1. Support local organizations

There are probably many organizations in your area dedicating their efforts to addressing various human rights issues. Find out what those groups are – and how you could support their campaigns and events.

  1. Start a local group

Can’t find a human rights organization fighting issues you’re passionate about in your local area? Start one! People will feel empowered by your move, and you’ll likely meet plenty of like-minded individuals who are also passionate about the same cause.

  1. Address the authorities

Have you ever written a letter to a member of your local council or parliament? It’s a great way to direct their attention to the issues that are important! Don’t be afraid to give your opinion of specific legislation – that’s what the authorities are there for.

  1. Volunteer

Many human rights organizations could use your help! Find a human rights cause you’re really passionate about – and dedicate some of your time to it.

  1. Attend a rally
