Everyone, everywhere has the right to live with dignity. That means that no-one should be denied their rights to adequate housing, food, water and sanitation, and to education and health care.
Around the world, people’s economic, social and cultural rights are violated on a daily basis, especially people living in poverty. Through the Demand Dignity campaign, Amnesty International is increasingly documenting how human rights violations drive and deepen poverty. People living in poverty have the least access to power to shape the policies of poverty and are frequently denied effective remedies for violations of their rights.
Amnesty International is working to hold governments, big business and other powerful actors to account for human rights violations which target people living in poverty, driving that poverty deeper still.
Amnesty’s Demand Dignity campaign stands with these people to claim their rights and to demand remedies for violations.
