by the Center for Inquiry:
Our global community finds itself in the midst of a human rights crisis. Many governments and institutions around the world are punishing individuals simply for deviating from, in word or in deed, religion and commonly practiced cultural customs.The right to freedom of expression is being whittled away, and innocent and peaceful people are every day suffering the consequences.
At the Center for Inquiry, we believe it's time for the global community to stand up together and declare that this is unacceptable. The Campaign for Free Expression is an initiative to focus attention and efforts on one of the most basic and foundational human rights: the freedom to speak. We hope you join us.
