Global Citizen campaign to end extreme poverty

Last week Global Citizen ran a story on quotes from various international public figures, as part of their “end extreme poverty” campaign. Here is how the issue is connected with Human Rights Defenders:

“I am delighted that Global Citizen is adding its voice to protect civil society space and recognizes the fundamental role played by human rights defenders in creating a more just and equal world. We cannot end poverty and achieve sustainable development without ensuring that human rights defenders are free to protect and support their communities, hold governments to account, and highlight human rights violations in business operations. I am hopeful this campaign and the Global Citizen platform will shine a greater light on the extreme risks that many human rights defenders are subject to for standing up for the rights of others.”
