#GIVINGTUESDAYNOW | MAY 5
A global day of giving and unity, #GivingTuesdayNow is an emergency response to the unprecedented need caused by COVID-19. Our work to protect the rights of the most vulnerable among us has never been more critical than at this time of crisis. School children unable to learn from online lessons because they can't afford a laptop, people held in jail simply because they cannot afford bail, farmworkers who risk their health every day to ensure we have food on our tables. Help us in the fight for equal justice.
The outbreak of COVID19 has led most governments around the world to hastily implement measures aimed at reducing the spread of the virus to avoid the collapse of hospitals and to protect people’s health. By doing so, governments have temporarily suspended a number of civil and constitutional rights - with considerable human rights implications.
Teaching human rights and creating awareness about the importance of the protection of human rights and the dignity of human beings is one of the core activities of our organisation. It is absolutely important for us to support not only students and teachers, but the public in general to understand the human rights implications of the current situation.
We have therefore developed dedicated human rights education material tailored to the current COVID19 crisis and kindly ask you for your support to make it possible for us further elaborate on this critical content.
