Change that leads to better lives

Human Rights Day 2018

This Human Rights Day we're with 150+ other groups across the UK #celebrating70 years of human rights protection.

Along with the BIHR we have signed a letter to the Prime Minister calling on her to safeguard our freedoms here at home...

Human Rights Day Civil Society Letter 2018

Dear Prime Minister

Today, on Human Rights Day, we ask you to join us in celebrating universal human rights in the UK and commit to standing firm on our hard-won freedoms and protections.

Created 70 years ago, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) is a milestone in human history. Following the horrors of World War II, the world community came together to say never again and set down the protections every person has simply because we are all human.

Heralded as Magna Carta for all human kind, the UDHR has set a common standard of achievement for all peoples and all nations, inspiring law and action across the world.

Through the European Convention on Human Rights and our own Human Rights Act we have brought those rights home, making them real and meaningful for people everyday across the UK.

2019 marks another milestone in our history. As the UK prepares to exit the European Union, and uncertainty surrounds us, we ask you to ensure that our commitment to universal human rights at home remains strong and certain.
