All of us can promote and defend human rights. We are calling on everyone, individuals as well as governments, companies, the civil society, the UN family and others to join us and make a difference. Here are some options to get you started.

We need to stand up for our rights and those of others. Each of us can stand up. We can take action in our daily lives, to uphold the rights that protect us all and thereby promote the kinship of all human beings.
