What Are Human Rights?
- According to the United Nations, human rights are "rights inherent to all human beings, regardless of race, sex, nationality, ethnicity, language, religion, or any other status."
- Some examples of human rights, as noted by the UN, "include the right to life and liberty, freedom from slavery and torture, freedom of opinion and expression, the right to work and education, and many more. Everyone is entitled to these rights, without discrimination."

Join in the Discussion of Human Rights Topics
The first step in combating human rights issues is to bring them to light. Tell a story about human rights violations that you have witnessed or experienced or speak out on behalf of voices that are silenced and marginalized. If you are part of a marginalized community, what do you want people to know about you? At World Pulse, we encourage you to speak out if you are you concerned about the rise of xenophobia, gender-based violations, or any other human right transgression. Share your own experiences, or write a letter of support to someone who has been targeted based on their religion or nationality. Do you recognize the humanity in all and wish others could see it too? Write a letter to someone who doesn’t see what you see.
Whatever story you have to share about human rights—share it here.
