The WCIA wants to get people thinking, talking, and taking action on important global issues. One of our values is the protection of human rights, so we are running events and getting involved in campaigns to celebrate human rights.

See what is coming soon.

One human right is the right to seek asylum from persecution (Article 14) in every country.
