#4: Take action on the issues you care about most

Human rights are under attack around the world, and we can do our part by calling on our government to pass laws and policies that protect justice around the globe.

#5: Support community activists on the front lines of crisis

World Humanitarian Day is observed every August 19 as a moment to honor workers on the front lines of humanitarian crises worldwide.
