Human Rights Day: "Protect our fundamental human rights, both now and for the future"

On Human Rights Day BASW is joining the British Institute of Human Rights and over 140 supporters with a single aim – to get people talking about human rights. We are supporting an open letter to Prime Minister Teresa May and the heads of all political parties in the UK, urging them to protect our fundamental human rights, both now and for the future.

"As our government navigates the uncertainty of Brexit, people's human rights should not be at risk. We want the Prime Minister to avoid division and isolation, and rather than tampering with our legal protections, to instead commit to universal human rights in the UK."

We encourage you to get involved in the dialogue on Facebook or Twitter.
