If you're interested in becoming involved with human rights issues, become a human rights activist! Join or create a group associated with the monitoring and protection of human rights!
What are NGO's?
NGO's are organizations run by individuals in our community. There is NO government involvement what so ever. Overall, these groups ensure that their voices are heard by the government.
Specifically, non-governmental organizations (NGO's) influence society and government the most!
Examples of NGO's associated with Human Rights causes include:
(VERY WELL KNOWN!)
Human Rights Watch
Human Rights Action Center
National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP)
AND MANY MORE!
Whether you're involved in a human rights organization or not, we all must take action against human rights abuses.
If you have witnessed a human rights violation, you must
to a NGO!
(I.e. Amnesty International)
True but unfortunate, Human Rights are violated daily across the globe behind closed doors. This occurs mostly in developing countries.
Rosa Parks was an individual who fought for African American rights during 1955. 'Colored' individuals were discriminated against; they were always expected to give in to ‘whites.’ Yet human rights argued against this, everyone was considered equal before the law, and free of discrimination.
On December 1, 1955 Parks was asked to leave her seat on the bus, so a white man could sit. She refused. Rosa Parks was charged with disobeying the segregation law. But she was not sitting in the ‘white section’ of the bus; she sat in the colored section. Parks was tired of being pushed around, and expected to always give in to the whites. Everyone knew this was wrong, yet Rosa Parks was the first to raise a voice against this discrimination. This caused human rights to be questioned throughout the country.
Parks received numerous amounts of rewards for her dedication and determination to change.
Another individual for who fought for human rights was Malala Yousafazi. Born on July 19th 1997, Malala was an independent and strong young woman. She is known as a female warrior. She fought for the equal right of women, as well as for the right to receive education. She fought against many, including the Taliban.
Malala believed it should be a human right to receive proper education, she wanted everyone to have equal opportunities. She received many awards for her contributions to create equality among all.
Where Did They Come From ?
Universal Declaration of Independence originates from the experiences of the World War II
Leaders vowed never to let atrocities of the war occur again
A committee was made to write a document called the Declaration on Fundamental Human Rights and Freedoms
The committee in charge of this was made up of 18 members from various political, cultural and religious backgrounds
A member of the Homo sapiens species; a man, woman or child; a person.
Things to which you are entitled or allowed; freedoms that are guaranteed.
Human Rights: noun
The rights you have simply because you are human.
Most countries such as Canada and the United States have constitutions that include our human rights. If we feel that they are being violated we are entitled to stand up for our rights in the court of law.
Human rights across the globe are protected and upheld under international and national laws.
