On December 10th, 1948, the United Nations Declaration of Human Rights was signed. This week, the global community commemorates International Human Rights Week in celebration of the 59th anniversary of the signing of this Declaration. mGive would like to recognize three of our nonprofit partners who work specifically to protect basic rights and freedoms to which all humans beings are entitled.

Call and Response
Call and Response (a production of Fair Trade Pictures) is the first feature "rockumentary" to expose the horrifying modern day slave trade that holds an estimated 27 million men, women and children in brutal bondage. Creators of the film believe that there is a sea of change happening within the realm of human rights activism: "The world's issues cannot be solved by governments and nonprofits alone, but require community based participation." The film has done a fantastic job of awakening viewers all over the country to the shocking reality of modern day slavery that, in many instances, exists right under our noses. Additionally, 100% of the film's proceeds will be used to fight for victims of sex slavery, labor slavery, and child slavery, as well as for child soldiers. mGive $5 to Call and Response by texting RESPOND to 90999.
