Festivaalikävijät keksivät paljon keinoja ihmisoikeuksien edistämiseen

 

The world came to visit at the World Village Festival

KIOS participated at the World Village Festival and shared information about the work human rights defenders do. There was a buzz at the KIOS stand, which featured human rights -tote bags, information about human rights defenders, and KIOS publications.

We asked festival-goers about the ways they can defend human rights. We received an amazing amount of suggestions and they were all great. Here are some of our favorites:

 

“By standing up to bullying”

“By advocating for a transgender rights law”

“By behaving like a human being”

“Supporting a safe and legal abortion right for women”

“Making art that has a message”

 

Remember that you can also defend human rights by supporting human rights defenders in Africa and Asia, through KIOS:  www.kios.fi/fi/donate
