From 10-17 October 2021, Amnesty UK, Liberty, Stonewall, Freedom from Torture, the British Institute for Human Rights, Equally Ours, The End Violence Against Women Coalition, the Quakers and The Humanists are holding a Week of Action for Human Rights in the UK.
This is in the context of major pieces of proposed legislation that threaten to undermine fundamental Human Rights including: the Policing Bill and Nationality and Borders Bill. To make matters worse the Human Rights Act itself is under review.
During this week, the organisations above are working to connect people with others in their area and with their MPs, by providing them templates and full briefings, to show how much we care about human rights and to ask our representatives to defend them.
To get involved, email firstname.lastname@example.org, telling them you want to be involved and who your MPs is. There will also be a number of events marking the week of action.
