Hello and happy holidays! The blog's taking an end-of-year break till January 5th, but the Hub remains up-and-running throughout the holiday period. In the meantime, we wanted to invite both our old and new friends of the Hub community to:
* Take part in our latest project by answering: What image opened *your* eyes to human rights?
* Read our blog to see how video had a unique impact on human rights in 2008.
* Join the Hub community (it is free and easy) and connect with thousands of others working to create change.
Please see more details below. We look forward to collaborating with you in the New Year.

We Invite You to: Participate - Explore - Join
1) What image opened your eyes to human rights? Was it an image that inspired and gave you hope, or was it one that showed you how much farther we still have to go? We asked that question earlier this month to honor the 60th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR). The outpouring of responses has come from around the world (and web) and has been truly amazing. Here's a quick compilation of the question we asked and the responses you sent back (click here to watch more responses and check out this post to read about everyone that participated). Now that you've seen everyone else's response, share yours and join the conversation!
2) Blog, blog, blog - this collection of posts is a valuable resource for anyone interested learning more about video, human rights, and social change. Go back to the early days of the Hub blog (a partnership with Global Voices) if you're looking for some deeper analysis...here you can dive into the story about how Egyptian bloggers have played a crucial role in exposing torture in prisons or learn more about protests in Peru that demanded equal treatment for domestic workers wanting to take a dip in the beaches of the Asia district...
3) Join the Hub - Here you can search for videos on issues you care about, watch and share those videos, and then learn about ways you can take action.
