a plan for peace and prosperity within a global community
Unite for Rights, (Unite) and the Global Bill of Rights upon which it rests, is a plan for peace and prosperity within a global community built upon a Global Bill of Rights. For details about this plan read our Unite for Rights booklet. Version 11 booklet
After the horrors of World War II, Eleanor Roosevelt and many others internationally came up with a plan for peace and prosperity for people in all countries based upon fundamental human rights. Unite's mission is to implement this plan by uniting people, businesses and governments to draft a Global Bill of Rights, a list of fundamental human rights enforceable in the courts of all countries.
You can take part: We are gathering 1% of people and businesses worldwide to sign a pledge to support the idea of a Global Bill of Rights so that we can focus together. Please sign the pledge. Signing the pledge does not support any particular list of rights, but rather supports the idea of people, businesses and governments drafting and implementing such a document.
Unite's draft Global Bill of Rights is not a finished document, but after 10 years of rigorous input from a broad spectrum of people globally, it's a great starting point. Help us make it better. Tell us if you have a suggestion about what rights such as free speech, education, equality, freedom of religion, and others, you think should be included. We recognize that it takes time to contribute, and Unite will give any person or organization, in their own equivalent currency, between $10 and $100 U.S. dollars for every comment that results in a change being made in the text of the Global Bill of Rights document, be it grammar or substantive. Unite seeks broad input.
If you have a better plan, or have read or heard of a better secular, written plan, please tell us. Unite will give any person or organization, in their own currency, the equivalent of $1,000 U.S dollars for any written plan, a book, article or napkin, written in the past or present, that will bring peace and prosperity within a global community better than the plan offered by Unite.
In addition to acting yourself, encourage others to do so. Dr. Martin Luther King said "Most people are taillights, not headlights." Be a headlight. Think about who you know, both individuals and businesses, who might sign a pledge in support of the idea of a Global Bill of Rights, and share Unite with them.
