Last year, on 10 December, thousands of associations and movements mobilised online and offline in the occasion of the 70th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights to celebrate how the work they do makes the promises of this document a reality for all.
Ahead of that day, we collected and shared through our channels inspiring examples of resilience, resistance and solidarity.
This year too, we feel we need positive stories, in times of turmoil, backlashes on fundamental rights and in a shrinking civic space, it is vital to show that people get together, they resist, they push back against hatred, repression and hardship. This will be a thread that will take us to the Action day organised for this December. Thus, in the following months, we will give voices to volunteers, activists, NGOs, movements, organisations, groups of individuals that are human rights defenders and stand up for human rights for all. Also, testimonials about people who have actually been helped by one of your projects are more than welcome.
If you know powerful stories that you think deserve more attention, feel free to contribute sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Here are three easy tips to follow:
the description of the story should be written in 1st person (singular or plural according to your needs). If you don’t want to use the story of your organisation, but – for instance – a touching story of someone who has actually been helped by one of your projects and you think might be powerful and a good example, you are totally free to decide.
The text should be between 200 and 250 words.
Send us a picture, representing the story you want to share.
To give you a more concrete idea of the model we are following, you can check our previous testimonials uploaded in our Facebook and Instagram page or on our MEGA campaign website.
