British Institute of Human Rights #Act Campaign

ONLY A WEEK TO GO before the Commission on a UK Bill of Rights closes its public consultation!

The British Institute of Human Rights (BIHR) launched #Act at the beginning of September, a new campaign to engage people in debates about the protection of our human rights.

According to Stephen Bowen, Director of BIHR:

The Human Rights Act is a bit like our health, we don't value it until it’s gone. So let's not wait until it’s too late to speak up, let's raise our voices together.
