On Monday 19 March, Justice and Peace and We Are Foundation with Bernhard Lenger signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) for the project, We Are Human Rights.

We Are Human Rights is a collaboration between designers and human rights defenders from the Shelter City initiative that seeks to contribute to the betterment of human rights. Through the creation of new solutions and tools, designers involved in the project hope to contribute to global change in the fields of international law and human rights.

On April 19, the We Are Foundation will be hosting a Design and Human Rights Forum in Eindhoven. The goal of the Design and Human Rights Forum is to brainstorm about ways in which design can support human rights defenders in their practice. For more information on how to attend, go to the Facebook event page here
