Human Rights Action Center partners with NGO's, musicians, actors, business, students - all who wish to create a unified voice for oppressed people everywhere. Together we speak for victims of hunger, human trafficking, war, oppressive governments, hate, and greed. The message is proclaimed in speeches, the written word, in video, via music, in one on one conversations on the train. It takes every person speaking up every day. Below are a few samples of past work.
