Cycling for human rights defendersAisha North
( Non-student | #Ride4Activists | Member of team: Tour de North! )
To stand up for the rights and freedoms of others, to speak out against violations, to rise up in the face of injustice, to sacrifice and risk your own life for humanity - these acts can only be described as incredibly brave and selfless. Human rights defenders, whether they are journalists, lawyers, environmental defenders, women's rights activists, LGBTI rights defenders, political or civil activists, artists, or filmmakers, are dedicating their lives every day to a fairer, more just world. Through my work, I get to meet these incredible people, while also knowing the devastating challenges they face daily simply for defending human rights. And even more so through my work, I know the impact that the Shelter City initiative has on supporting and protecting human rights & human rights defenders.
With sweat, blood, and probably some tears, I ride for these amazing people & for a better world.
You can create your own personalized poster to draw attention to this fundraising page. After printing the poster you can hang it in a shop, a café window or a community bulletin board. Ask your family, friends, co-workers and neighbors to help and also put up a poster in their home, school or work place. Most people are willing to help but be sure to ask permission first.
