Shared Values — a cause and an action.
Mission: Opening closed societies by empowering human rights activists. Crowdsourcing human rights.
About: At the nexus of technology and human rights, Movements connects dissidents in closed societies with individuals around the world with skills to help. This powerful combination provides those fighting for human rights in dictatorships with the expertise they need to strengthen their voice. Movements takes out the middleman in human rights and creates links to strengthen dissidents and weaken dictators. It gives average people with unique skills the ability to help activists in need. Crowdsourcing the fight for human rights is a new solution to an old problem. Movements is where anyone with a skill- artists, writers, journalists, translators, technologists, PR experts, policy-makers and more - can connect directly with human rights activists in closed societies. Our philosophy is that big, collective actions are only possible through small, individual ones. Everyone has a role to play.
