    #YALIStands4All - YALI NETWORK

    #YALIStands4All is an initiative to raise awareness about human rights. Over the next few months we will be talking about the legal and moral obligation to protect the rights of all, the responsibility of individuals to act and the benefits of diversity to society.

    In the immortal words of Nelson Mandela, “To deny any person their human rights is to challenge their very humanity.” 

    Together, we are making strides to protect the human rights of all.

    Human rights are the basic rights and freedoms to which all humans are entitled, whatever their nationality, gender, ethnic origin, sexuality, colour, physical ability, religion, language, social or economic status. No practice or tradition is greater than the human rights that belong to all of us. These rights are all interrelated, interdependent, and indivisible.  We invite you to join #YALIStands4All and the YALI Network in standing up for human rights.
    The words “equality” and “equity” look similar, sound similar and even point to the same concept of fairness. So it is understandable if, at first, you think they mean the same thing.

    As the YALI Network kicks off its #YALIStands4All campaign focused on human rights, not only the rights but also the opportunities of minority groups and other communities will be discussed in greater detail. Understanding the difference between equality and equity is a great way to start thinking about human rights in your community.

    Put in the simplest terms, equality means “sameness,” and equity means “fairness.” People who grew up impoverished are probably familiar with the difference, since they had to work much harder to receive the same level of education as many of their peers or to find networking opportunities that came more easily to others.
