How do you fight powerful dark forces? We’re not talking Star Wars here, or Harry Potter, but real human struggles. Ask the leaders of human rights movements, and their answers chime pretty closely together.

You need something that unites people and inspires them to believe in a better world. Scan through famous speeches by human rights advocates, and it’s notable how often they come back to one concept. Yep, you guessed it. L-O-V-E.

They’re not always talking about the love between partners – though human rights can help with that. It’s not necessarily about the love between family members either, though human rights can help with that too.

While love is in the air, we thought it’d be fun to discover which famous names have linked human rights to that four-letter word – in quiz format!

Can you match these quotes about love to the human rights heroes who said them?

💜 Let’s play! 💜

So what lies at the heart of human rights movements? Call it compassion, or empathy, if you prefer. But many people who have taken a stand for human rights – who remind us why it’s important to stand up for one another – they call it love. 💕
