iDefendRights: collecting stories from human rights defenders worldwide

DefendDefenders is excited to invite you to participate in iDefendRights, a new global project to create a massive audio archive of voices of people all over the world who defend human rights. We hope that you will record yourself on this platform, responding to a few questions, and that you will ask other to do the same. Once you fired up your computer, it will only take a few minutes.
All over the world, human rights defenders and civil society are under attack, confronted by hostile narratives that question the value and legitimacy of our work. Together with the Norwegian Human Rights Fund, Memria.org, and other partners DefendDefenders aims to demonstrate the wide diversity, commitment, and motivation of all people who defend human rights. After collecting the testimonies, the project will distribute many of them through creative communications channels.
Please take a few minutes out of your day and visit www.idefendrights.org to record yourself, anonymously if need be. We also encourage you to share this project with your friends, colleagues, and fellow human rights defenders.

Human Rights Defender of the Month: Malab Alneel

Malab Alneel was only 20 when Sudan’s revolution started in December 2018, but she knew it was the moment to get involved: “I grew up in a house that was very political. All of my sisters are activists, my parents are very involved. Activism has always been there. But for me it started with the revolution. It just felt like a time for change.”
