Blackout for Human Rights is a Collective of Filmmakers, Artists, Activists, Musicians, Lawyers, Tastemakers, Religious Leaders and Concerned Citizens Who Commit their Energy and Resources to Immediately Address the Staggering Level of Human Rights Violations and Injustices Against Fellow Americans Throughout the United States
We demand an immediate end to the brutal treatment and inhumane killings of our loved ones; the lives of our friends, our parents and our children have value and should be treated with respect. Our right to life is secured not only by our humanity, but is protected by law both federally and internationally by the Constitution of the United States of America and the United Nation’s Universal Declaration of Human Rights
Our Hope: to end violence against and the unjust killings of American citizens.
Our Aim: to raise awareness that builds and maintains pressure on the instruments of power until we are satisfied that the current threat has passed.
- To raise awareness about publicly funded human rights violations, through social media influence and organized grassroots events.
- To find lasting solutions to the root causes of this issue, through research, fundraising, and advocacy.
- To empower citizens most at risk for these types of violations (low income, minorities, women and the disabled) by using our collective economic resources to make impact.
