Cycle 50km or 100km across the British countryside and raise funds for our partner Rights for Peace!
Why Ride for Peace?
Over 84 million people are currently displaced worldwide as a result of persecution, conflict and human rights abuses. Last year a person fled almost every second – and that was before Ukraine. We’re all human, yet around the world we see minority groups being discriminated, demonised, dehumanised, their rights eroded – paving the way to mass atrocities. This isn’t a new story. It’s predictable. It’s also preventable.
Rights for Peace focuses on upholding people’s rights to transitional justice and countering identity-based violence in countries where divisions are fuelling atrocities.
Supporting Rights for Peace at this event will help counter identity-based discrimination and conflict recurring in Sudan and South Sudan. The suggested minimum target of £150 (minimum contribution of £50) will train 5 community leaders to counter hate speech and incitement to violence.
