LCN stands by the Human Rights Act

Tuesday, December 10th 2013

Today, on global Human Rights Day, the Law Centres Network joined over 100 other UK civil society groups in an open letter in the Daily Telegraph.

The letter calls on political leaders of all parties to acknowledge “the vital role of human rights in ensuring a fair and healthy democracy, helping us all to live with dignity and respect.”

Human rights are a safety net that connects people from all walks of life and seeks to safeguard a healthy and fair democracy. Today and every day we stand by the UK law that protects this safety net - the Human Rights Act.
