Who, Like Me, Is Threatened?

Human rights issues and abuses affect us all regardless of who we are, where we come from, or what we believe in. This multi-media interactive display invites visitors to contemplate what unites us while exploring how intolerance toward what divides us can impact lives.

Right now, somewhere in the world, a person is threatened or persecuted for being just like you. Maybe he or she behaves like you, looks like you, or believes what you believe. In the Who, Like Me, is Threatened exhibit, visitors get to meet a person whose human rights have been violated because of a trait that they share.

Any one of us can be a human rights defender. All over the world, men, women and young people are moved by their principles to take that first step, and raise their voices, educate others, donate money, or organize and advocate for change.
