Join the Human Rights Tour

Human Rights Tour 2013_head

Join us to find out

why you need human rights and why human rights need you.

Why you need human rights: because they are your rights! Importantly, human rights can also support people in the voluntary and public sectors to do things better. Our Tour events are about raising awareness and learning more about applying human rights in everyday life.

Why human rights need you: human rights go to the heart of the kind of society we want to be. There is lots of talk about human rights at the moment, including getting rid of our human rights law.  You can find out more about what these plans really mean and what you can do.DATECITYVENUEPARTNER10 SeptBrightonBrighthelm Centre, North Road, Brighton, BN1 1YD
