How to be a Digital Defender
Taking part is easy, and anyone with a social media account can do it! Our current Digital Defenders theme is #ProtectProtest, to raise awareness of the important role that protest plays in challenging injustice and defending human rights.
There are two main ways to be a Digital Defender:
1. Share positive content on social media that promotes the values of compassion, inclusiveness, solidarity, truth, and justice
2. Change the conversation when you come across comments on social media that include discrimination or misinformation
