How it works
As soon as we hear of someone in urgent need of your support – an outspoken blogger who has disappeared, a prisoner denied treatment for a life-threatening illness, women’s rights campaigners harassed by the police – we’ll contact you by SMS (text) message with details of the case. For instance, we might ask you to add your name to a petition putting pressure on a regime to reveal the whereabouts of someone who has ‘disappeared’. When you get the message, simply text us back to take action instantly. On average, you’ll receive one text message per month and texts are free to receive.
