Make your voice heard text written on blue backgroundAll of us are different and unique. Our experiences of how are rights are upheld in everyday British life, or not upheld, are important to share with others to help people not accessing their rights to self-advocate for themselves.

We invite you to share your own story on why human rights matter to you personally, who human rights are for, and why they must be protected and upheld in our society.

POhWER’s CEO, Helen Moulinos, has written this guest blog for the British Institute of Human Rights explaining why advocacy and rights given to us in the Human Rights Act are important. 

Maybe you want to write a blog? Or post a picture of yourself and your opinion about why human rights are there to protect you, your family, friends and everyone in our society to live lives of dignity and be treated as equal people.
