On 5 November the British Institute of Human Rights tour will be in Belfast to talk about the real human rights story.

The real story is that human rights protect us all. When we didn’t have them, people struggled to obtain them. Now we have them, we should use them – or we may find we will lose them.

Discuss the threat to human rights today and have your say in the current debate.

Join the event to find out how:

  • public sector organisations like Mersey Care NHS Trust are using human rights to improve services
  • voluntary sector organisations like Downs Syndrome Association are using human rights to support those they work with
  • individuals are using human rights to challenge decisions which have left them vulnerable
