This year, to mark the International Day Against Fascism and Antisemitism on 9 November, and Human Rights Day on 10 December, UNITED is coordinating a campaign to celebrate Human Rights Superheroes – people from past and present who made great contributions – and often great sacrifices – to defend the rights of others.

Do you have your own Human Rights Superhero that inspires you? Make a profile of them and share it with UNITED! Your Human Rights Superhero could be a famous activist from past or present who inspires you, or even someone from your own community who works tirelessly to protect the rights of others! Click here to see the profiles already submitted!

Your Human Rights Superhero profile could take any format you like – an image, a video or a short text. If you want to produce a graphic, feel free to use the templates provided at the bottom of this page to help you with your design – or create something new! Once you have your profile, share it on social media with the hashtag #HumanRightsHeroes – and send it to UNITED using the form below. We will also share it on our website and via social media! The deadline for the campaign is 10 December 2016!

If you are a city representative, please click here to find out about our Cities campaign!
