“I am cognizant of the interrelatedness of all communities and states. I cannot sit idly by in Atlanta and not be concerned about what happens in Birmingham. Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere. We are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly.”

DignityNow! is a journalistic human rights collective working to amplify the voices of those fighting against dehumanisation, oppression and enforced cultural and political exile, with a focus on human rights in Europe.

We believe in the need to battle the removal of human rights violations from their economic, social and political context, and to deconstruct the role of ideology in the perpetuation of attacks on human dignity globally.
