Report Human Rights Abuses
You can—and should—report human rights abuses. Even if they are not prosecuted, publicity or the prospect of an investigation can have a restraining effect on the perpetrators.
- List the specific Articles of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights that have been violated.
- State the facts, as far as possible in chronological order.
- Include the date, time and place of the incident(s); name and position of the perpetrator(s); place of detention if applicable; names and addresses of any witnesses and any other important details.
Organizations to report to:
- Amnesty International
- Human Rights Action Center
- Human Rights Watch
- Children’s Defense Fund
- Other organizations
