The Universal Declaration of Human Rights is the fundamental and international agreement on what human rights are, and so must be known and applied throughout the world. Make your voice heard. Make human rights education in schools and universities part of the curriculum. You can ensure human rights are learned and demanded by everyone, by sending a mail to the head of the education department. You can immediately launch petition drives and send letters to legislators asking that they enact human rights legislation (and in turn prevent legislation that endangers human rights).
Get online for democracy and for Huamn Rights freedom. Increasingly, the distinction between online and offline lives is blurred, as the use of smartphones and social media increases rapidly in India and across the world. Now, more than ever, social media can be a powerful tool for social change.Technology has helped us change the way we have our say in the society – write a blog, create a Facebook group, mobilise people online – spread good ideas that catch on and spark a movement. Join us to become a Digital Crusader for human rights in India..
You can—and should—report human rights abuses. Even if they are not prosecuted, publicity or the prospect of an investigation can have a restraining effect on the perpetrators.
Do you want to take an active role in initiating activities and forwarding the cause of human rights in your community or professional area? The most effective thing you can do is start a NHRSJC local group.
