Get heard

Next time human rights ‘hits the headlines’ please write a letter to your local or regional newspapers or to the national press, post your comments on a website (like or telephone a radio phone-in. Most media reporting of human rights fails to tell the whole story, painting a negative picture. You could tell the other side of the story, with positive examples of how human rights have benefited many ordinary people and your own thoughts about how human rights are relevant in daily life. See our information and resources pages for BIHR briefings defending human rights.

Lobby your MP

The Human Rights Act is under threat. Local constituents can have a very strong influence on their MP. Write to or visit your MP and ask them what they will do to safeguard the future of the Human Rights Act. Find out more.

Spread the word

Tell your family, friends and colleagues about BIHR and our work. Send them a link to our website, show them our publications, tell them about our events or ask them to sign up to our regular e-news here.
