CFA: Invitation to Participate in the “I Defend Rights” Project
Priority deadline: July 1, 2018
I Defend Rights: Shifting the Narrative about Human Rights Defenders and Civil Society Globally is a project of the Norwegian Human Rights Fund and Memria.org, in collaboration with numerous partners around the world.
Please join us and record your voice.
There is no need for preparation in advance. We will ask three questions and record (audio only) your answers.
We are collecting audio accounts from human rights defenders to create a global archive of recordings of their experiences working on the front lines defending the rights of others. We then develop multiple ways to share many of these audio recordings with much broader audiences, such as through exhibits and using social media platforms.
- It is easy and only takes a few minutes
- You can re-record as many times as you want
- We will ask you a few simple questions
- You can remain anonymous
- We will not ask you to reveal sensitive information
- You can (but don’t have to) upload photographs of yourself or your work
We are collecting these recordings because the world needs to know about the work of people like YOU who defend rights. (Please record your story using a computer and not a phone or tablet.)
These stories will be used for Advocacy, Outreach Communication and strengthening a positive narrative about human rights defenders that more accurately conveys how important this work is.
