Help get Black and ethnic minority people to safety from Ukrainian borders
Please help Black and ethnic minority people who are trapped and suffering, trying to get to safety. They are looking for somewhere safe to go to, to escape the conflict. They need our help to get out safely and collectively we could have the power to do so.
There is a war in Ukraine. Everyone has a basic human right to be safe. Imagine how scary it is for everyone trapped there.
"The Universal Declaration of Human Rights states:
Article 3: We all have the right to life, and to live in freedom and safety.
Article 5: No one has the right to inflict torture, or to subject anyone else to cruel or inhuman treatment.
Article 6: We should all have the same level of legal protection whoever we are, and wherever in the world, we are.
Article 7: The law is the same for everyone, and must treat us all equally.
Article 8: We should all have the right to legal support if we are treated unfairly.
Article 13: We all have the right to move freely within our country, and to visit and leave other countries when we wish.
Article 14: If we are at risk of harm we have the right to go to another country to seek protection.
'The UDHR marked an important shift by daring to say that all human beings are free and equal, regardless of colour, creed or religion. For the first time, a global agreement put human beings, not power politics, at the heart of its agenda' "
Right now, we could negotiate the safe extraction and transportation of people to their homes around the world.
Please let us come together and ensure every human gets their equal right to safety by giving a little bit more to where more is needed and closing the gap in inequity.
If we do not, who will?
#Be the Change!

People have a right to safety and signing this petition could help effect real change in many lives.
