Fridays For Freedom

<REGISTER TO RECEIVE THE SOCIAL MEDIA PACKAGE>

Across the world, democracy is in decline. From authoritarian regimes cracking down on freedoms and rights in Hong Kong, to dictators preventing free elections in Venezuela and Belarus, the situation is deteriorating fast. No country alone has the leverage to oppose dictatorships and protect freedom. it’s time to dream bigger. 

We are working, through the Wave of Freedom campaign, to push for major democracies to ally, counter dictators' crackdown on dissent, and Stand With Hong Kong, Venezuela, the Uyghurs, Taiwan, and much more! As part of this campaign, we are organizing “Fridays For Freedom”. People across the world organize and partake in protests to make sure that world leaders don't have a choice but to unite.

PARTICIPATE ON YOUR OWN

If you cannot make it to a protest because of restrictions in your country, take a picture of yourself with a sign supporting one democratic struggle (or more!) in front of a government building to ask your country to act (or in your living room). Then, share it on social media, tagging 5 friends and us! 

Fill the form on this page to receive a social media package to participate in the action, regular updates, and you will let our team know that you are on our side!
