Bloggers Unite for Human Rights tomorrow (May 15)

Bloggers UniteBloggers will Unite to raise awareness about Human Rights tomorrow. Will you take part? What will you write about? I’m still tossing around ideas on the topic I will tackle (there are so many to choose from), but I wrote over at BlogHer yesterday that it would be a great opportunity for people to write about maternal health or the relief effort for the people of Burma.

If you do blog about human rights tomorrow, please leave me a comment with the link to your post. I’d love to read it and compile a list of what all of my readers are raising awareness about.

Thank you. 🙂

Edited to add: By the way, I probably am not going to get to publish my post until the afternoon on Thursday since I didn’t get the opportunity to write tonight like I had hoped, thanks to a very wakeful little boy (who’s teeth will likely be fine by the way – per the dentist). 😉

  1. Goddess – Thanks for the reminder about tomorrow’s blog efforts. I am just starting a blog and this will be a great second day effort. I can’t wait to see what you write about and I hope to see others subject matter. I’m still deciding what to write about…I was thinking about violence against women, but also consider Middle East refugee crises, including Palestinians and Iraqis, and may even do something domestically with food security in the US. I’ll check in with you tomorrow to see what you write!

  2. I’m thinking of just going with my gut and writing about China which was my original plan. I’m sorry for what is going on over there, however it doesn’t mean that the folks in charge are any less responsible for the many human rights violations that occur.

  3. I am planning on posting a clip from a 60 minutes a few weeks ago. The great Dr. Farmer the founder of Partners in Health. His clinics are training Dr. in 3rd world countries to provide health care to those who need it most. The story is too amazing for words. The idea based on teaching a man to fish, through healthcare.

  4. I wrote about the abuse of Native American Women.
    I live near the Seneca Reservation in WNY and share a heritage with them through my father. So I felt that this was an issue close to my heart and that I could actually DO something about besides simply sending a check. I interact with these women frequently as a doula and parent educator, so I feel like I can assist them in finding resources.
