The critical mass of change agents who will deliver irreversible impact on the issue of this time, in this lifetime.
WHO IS THE BREAKTHROUGH GENERATION?
YOU are the Breakthrough Generation.
HUMAN RIGHTS are universal and fundamental. More than a matter of oppression in far-off lands, they are intrinsic to the way they treat each other in their communities, in their families, and in their homes. For this reason, they use pop culture, multimedia, community mobilization, and leadership training to reach people where they are and ignite change in the world around them.
BREAKTHROUGH seeks to make discrimination and violence against women and girls unacceptable everywhere and in all its forms, including domestic violence, sexual harassment in public spaces, early marriage, and gender-biased sex selection. They address these issues through the lens of gender, sexuality and human rights.
Their Strategies THAT TRANSFORM HEARTS & MINDS TO INSPIRE PEOPLE TO ACT FOR CHANGE:
They use media, arts, pop culture, and technology—animations, music videos, video games, social media and more—to reach mass audiences where they are, challenge norms, and make human rights values and issues real, relevant, urgent, and actionable.
They train new generations of leaders in schools, neighborhoods, and civil society groups to ignite change in the world around them.
They develop strategic, game-changing partnerships with communities, governments, businesses, and entertainment leaders to reach maximum scale and lasting impact.
They cultivate grassroots community engagement to raise awareness and inspire action for local and global human rights issues.
They measure their impact and share lessons learned in the broader field of innovations for social justice and human rights.
