Your Rights, Your Views

What do human rights mean to you?

Did you know human rights include things like the right to housing, food and social security?

What should be done to make rights more of a reality for you and your community?

Find out more, and share your own experiences of human rights in everyday life, at this drop-in event with the Scottish Human Rights Commission and Equality and Rights Network.

The event is particularly for people from black and minority ethnic communities to tell us about their experiences of human rights issues, but everyone is welcome.

On Tuesday 26 November there will be two drop-in sessions:

10.30am-1pm at North Edinburgh Arts, 15a Pennywell Court, EH4 4TZ

6.30pm-8pm at Whale Arts Centre, 30 Westburn Grove, EH14 2SA

There is no need to attend both sessions!

You can drop in on the day or you can let us know that you’d like to come along by contacting ChloΓ« at the Scottish Human Rights Commission or Euan at EaRN. Our details are:
