Human Rights First - American Ideals. Universal Values.

Dear Naresh,

This Veterans Day our country feels extremely divided. Neighbors, friends, and even family not only feel like they are on opposite sides of the aisle, but in different realities altogether.

That’s why veterans are speaking up to remind us of our common commitment to the ideals enshrined in our Constitution—ideals that are truly worth fighting for.

Veterans for American Ideals, a project of Human Rights First, seeks to raise veterans’ voices on the causes that unite us as Americans and the principles that led them to put on the uniform in the first place. We do this without regard to partisanship or the winners or losers of elections.

Share this video on Facebook and Twitter to help us remind America that we are a nation that extends its hand to the victims of conflict and oppression. That we will never yield to Islamophobia, racism, xenophobia, or prejudice of any kind. That above all, we will reject fear and we will embrace hope.

We need your support to make our work possible. Please make a gift that is meaningful to you today that tells us and the world that you believe in an America for all of us.

United we stand.

Director, National Security Outreach

On human rights, the United States must be a beacon. America is strongest when our policies and actions match our values.
Human Rights First - American Ideals. Universal Values.
Human Rights First is an independent advocacy and action organization that challenges America to live up to its ideals. We believe American leadership is essential in the struggle for human rights so we press the U.S. government and private companies to respect human rights and the rule of law. When they don’t, we step in to demand reform, accountability and justice. Around the world, we work where we can best harness American influence to secure core freedoms.
