Human Rights


The WCIA wants to get people thinking, talking, and taking action on important global issues. One of our values is the protection of human rights, so we are running events and getting involved in campaigns to celebrate human rights.

See what is coming soon.

The right to seek asylum


One human right is the right to seek asylum from persecution (Article 14) in every country.

With the number of people seeking santuary higher than ever, the need to provide refuge is vital. We joined the Refugees Welcome Campaign last year and also support the City of Sanctuary movement, for Wales to be a country of hospitality and welcome.
