CIVICUS: World Alliance for Citizen Participation
How would we know about attacks on human rights if the media didn't report them? And how would the media be able to report on them if they weren't alerted to the violations? Raising awareness among diverse media and communications about little known human rights violations is a crucial part of the fight to build a better world.
By supporting the production of our media releases, your gift will enable us to research a situation where civil society is under threat, check and compile this information and package it for the media and other interested groups. Encouraging the media to report on these events can be a case of saving life and liberty for the frontline campaigners involved. CIVICUS produces campaign alerts, media releases, tailors articles for publications, conducts and gives interviews and produces a monthly electronic newsletter. Help to speak out and mobilize effective responses to events that threaten citizens’ fundamental rights to collectively express, associate and organize throughout the world.
