ATC - how do you think we could use this thread to help raise human rights awareness and breed ideas for all of us to help promote human rights?
We can start by treating ourselves and those immediately around us with greater respect and compassion. And, we can open our eyes to what's going on in the world instead of staying so insulated in the relatively comfortable US (where they at least try to hide these abuses from us).
I hoped to hear some ideas about what we can do in this thread because I am not sure what we can do nationally or globally. For one, I would put my vote to work and use it to elect officials with a strong interest in human rights. We can support causes like Amnesty International. We can write letters to our officials speaking out. In this thread we can put up articles that talk about the issue and hopefully find some resources that will show us how to make a difference.
