It seems that more and more, ordinary citizens all around the world are using social media tools like blogs, YouTube, and Twitter to reach out to a global audience to report on and expose the rampant human rights violations that are occurring every single day. But it is all too easy for us to be swept away by this new frontier, overly confident of what it is capable of. We must proceed with caution and with a conscious mind. Join Journalists for Human Rights during Social Media Week where we hope to educate and inform the technologically savvy and globally conscious citizen of how to effectively and, more importantly, responsibly share, tweet, or blog of issues that deal with human rights in a way that will encourage an ongoing dialogue.
