EVERYDAY PRACTICE: PROJECTS & TRAINING Events & Trainings The Human Rights Tour Crowd Funding the 15 Days of Action 2 October 2015 will mark the 15th anniversary of the Human Rights Act and the return of BIHR’s annual Human Rights Tour. To celebrate, we are making this year’s Tour the biggest ever and have launched our first ever crowdfunding page, asking people to join us and support our Fifteen Days of Action Campaign. As the government presses on with its commitment to repeal the Human Rights Act, it is more important than ever that people speak up for the our universal protections and the stories of the positive difference the Act has made are heard. To celebrate the 15th anniversary of the Human Rights Act, we have organised a packed plan of exciting activities taking place between 2 and 16 October to raise awareness of the positive changes the Human Rights Act has brought about across the UK. We will be: Travelling across all four nations the UK for our Human Rights Tour, hosting community conversations about the Human Rights Act; Creating spaces to bring young people into the human rights debates with pop-up events especially designed for 12 to 18 year olds; Tackling the myths and misunderstandings surrounding the Human Rights Act, going beneath the headlines of recent and recurring human rights stories; Publishing exciting new resources telling the personal stories of people who have benefited from the Human Rights Act; Supporting people to take part in the first ever “Human Rights Act Bakeoff!” and sharing a slice of cake and human rights information with friends, colleagues and even their local MP; and Blogging daily on the landmark cases and human rights stories from each of the Human Rights Act’s fifteen years. This is our biggest ever community education push and we need your help to make it a success. We are hoping to raise £5,000 and have launched a crowdfunding page to help us meet this target which you can find by clicking here. Together we can take conversations about human rights out of the political corridors and courtrooms and into the hearts of our communitiesd courtrooms and into the hearts of our communities.
