Who we are
Voice Your Rights Project is a student-led organisation at the University of Nottingham, built upon the belief that everyone should be able to live in a society in which every person is respected and treated as equals.
Since being founded in 2013 by Dimitris Vichas, the project has gone from strength to strength, winning the University of Nottingham Student Volunteer Centre’s ‘Project of the Year’ in 2015.
Voice Your Rights is a proud member of the University of Nottingham’s Environment and Social Justice Network: http://www.uonsu-esj.co.uk/
What we do
The project works to raise awareness, educate and advocate about human rights both within the University student body, the local Nottingham community and further afield.
How we do it
Events seeks to provide a space where members of the local community and university students can come together to discuss key human rights topics, and ask questions to and challenge their views and knowledge. Events include public debates, fun days, art exhibitions and film screenings.
Education seeks to address a gap in the curriculum of schools regarding fundamental human rights through providing fun, interactive and educational lessons for children in local primary schools.
Campaigns seeks to raise awareness, sensitise and drive changes in our local community around long term and current human rights violations; getting people involved through petitions, voicing their opinions and taking positive actions to combat discrimination and inequality in all its forms.
