The best way to fight the rise of far right extremism is to build support for basic human rights protections. That’s the simple idea behind the launch of our first ever online campaign – Fighting Hate with Human Rights – on  Tuesday 29th August 2017. 

We started off with what we thought was an ambitious goal: £10,000 to create a short documentary about how we can fight the dangers of the rise of extremism and intolerance by promoting and protecting basic human rights. We will  speak to survivors of genocide and highlight common themes of the denial of basic rights which led to the dehumanisation which made genocide possible.

A great start

Incredibly, within a day we have achieved our initial target thanks to a £6,000 pledge by a charitable trust, Unbound Philanthropy, and over 80 brilliant backers who donated almost £5,000 through our online crowdfunder campaign.

But the ideas don’t stop there! The next step is to raise a further £5,000 to create a multi-part campaign to spread this message further including a series of feature articles, bespoke illustrations, Humans of New York-style interviews and some shorter videos exploring the stories within the main film.

We have only made it this far thanks to you, our amazing supporters, and we do hope you will donate, share via social media and spread the message about RightsInfo, the importance of Human Rights and our crowdfunder. You could make all the difference (oh and you can get some lovely perks like these mugs as well!)
