From the beginning, Crowdsourcing Human Rights has sought to welcome people from every culture and discipline to contribute their skills to promoting and protecting a universal standard of human rights for all people. Today, more than ever, we believe in every person’s ability, regardless of their professional field, education, or financial contribution, to engage in civil society activism, improving conditions around the world, one act at a time.
Movements is a nonpartisan, nonpolitical, not-for-profit crowdsourcing platform that connects activists in closed countries with resources and allies around the world. Activists can request help and receive offers for assistance from trusted volunteer Resource Providers anywhere in the world. Once matched, the connection provides activists the tools they need to fight human rights abuses in their countries, supporting human rights defenders, one match at a time.
HOMANITY is a compilation album featuring prominent Iranian artists to raise awareness about the censorship and persecution of artists in Iran. Music, although an integral part of Iranian culture, is treated by the government of the Republic of Iran as inherently corrupting and is strictly censored and can be punishable by imprisonment and even torture. In response, HOMANITY fights back against repressive regimes by showcasing censored art and artists that have dedicated their lives to standing up for freedom of expression and for a world where artists of every gender, color, religion, and sexual orientation can produce their music without fear.
