In June 2015, Office of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights will release an updated report on the state of on human rights, sexual orientation and gender identity throughout the world. The last version was released in 2011, and this time, they want to hear from you!
As a key convener on human rights issues, the UN is focusing on sharing best practices and ways to overcome violence and discrimination in order to uphold international human rights law and standards. Now, they need your eyes and ears on the ground to help them understand the most successful efforts around the world to uphold rights for all.
Do you have an example of a way your school, organization, or community has come together to end discrimination against LGBT people? Examples include ally groups, facilitating public dialogue, and more.
Send your examples (in less than 100 words) to firstname.lastname@example.org by December 7.
Thanks in advance for lending a hand to the UN! Human Rights Day is December 10. How are you celebrating?
