A Personal Cause For Him
Most human rights activists aren’t motivated by something that actually happened to them. usually, they are motivated by something they have seen on the internet or something they have seen in other media. However, for Thor Halvorssen he is trying to fight for a cause that has personally affected him and his love ones. Born in Venezuela, his family includes some of the most prominent members of Venezuelan society. The rise of dictators in his home country has made life difficult for his loved ones. In fact, some of them have even been arrested or killed for their resistance.
How He Stands Up For Others
The most important way that he stands up for others is his efforts to expose the conditions that are so common for those living under dictatorships. To do this he often employs the use of documentaries discussing the lives of those living under oppression. Beyond his efforts to expose these injustices he has also made attempts to spread his message to people living under dictators.
What He Plans To Do Now
The Human Rights Foundation is the center of activism against closed societies. No other organization has made such an effort to change things around the world and no other organization has received so much recognition. To keep things up Halvorssen wants to focus his energy on connecting with other activists and doing everything possible to create a more global movement to stand up to the dictators around the world who threaten the rights of their people. He refuses to allow this to deter him in the slightest.
