As political and economic discontent continue to spread across the globe, we must not forget that the basic human rights and freedoms we enjoy and expect as citizens are more vital and precious than ever. Both at home and abroad, basic human rights and freedoms are being slowly chiseled away in the name of "security," and we see new human targets of discrimination and suspicion every day. But regardless of race, color, ethnic or national origin, religion, political beliefs, gender, sexual orientation, or physical or mental disability, we must not forget or compromise our commitment to equality and freedom for all people. In the RIGHTS Community, we’ll recognize and address human and civil rights and other issues related to immigration, political dissent, free speech, religious freedom, as well as the rights of nature and all sentient beings.

Host a screening today to find out what's at stake, and how you can help.
