Who we are
We are the Voice Your Rights Project
, a student-led project who believe that we all should be able to live in a society in which every person is respected and treated as equals.
What we do
To raise awareness, educate and advocate about human rights both within the University student body, the local Nottingham community and further afield.
How we do it
There are three main divisions within the project:
- Events seeks to provide a space where members of the local community and university students can come together to discuss key human rights topics, and ask questions to and challenge their views and knowledge. Events include public debates, fun days, art exhibitions and film screenings.
- Education seeks to address a gap in the curriculum of schools regarding fundamental human rights through providing fun, interactive and educational lessons for children in local primary schools.
- Campaigns seeks to raise awareness, sensitise and drive changes in our local community around long term and current human rights violations; getting people involved through petitions, voicing their opinions and taking positive actions to combat discrimination and inequality in all its forms.
We are always seeking new members to join the team and help deliver our events, educatiion course and campaigns. In particular we're really keen to hear from enthusiastic student volunteers who would like the opportunity to teach our human rights course in local primary schools.
There are far more opportunities than it is possible to list here so please send us an email, find us on Facebook, Twitter (@VoiceYourRights), Instagram and YouTube and get involved.
