#V is a newly founded organization that aims to expose human rights atrocities throughout the world. We live in a world where violations of human rights happen every day, many of which go untold. We can change this, by supporting the initiative that #V is promoting. The website is a platform for people to tell their stories anonymously or publicly and promote the #V which stands for violation. Since this is newly founded, we are in need of support of people like you and me to follow and like our social media pages in order for the following to become broader and expand. The unique thing about this is that there are many people who are standing in collaboration with the cause and are working closely in their communities to help bring awareness to human rights violations. Let us all stand in unity to create awareness for human rights and stand up against oppression.
