Campaign to Print the Universal Declaration of Human Rights Into Passports

Given that less than 5% of the world knows of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights existence at this time, it seems that the only way to get the document seriously distributed is through the passports.
What I want is for governments to own their own document. It is for all people, but governments need to acknowledge its existence. Because passports are the official representation of government, if the declaration is in all passports, it becomes an official documentation of the world.
I would like you to WRITE A SIMPLE LETTER of this affect, asking your senator, congressmen and our new government to do this. If the United States Government were to do this, it would send a good signal to the rest of the world that we intend to live by international standards and would signal that the new government is quite serious about protecting the rights of all people.
All it takes to get this done is a presidential order. It doesn't need any new legislation.

Thanks for your support,
Jack Healey

Dear Supporter,

Shepard Fairey has just unveiled a new image depicting Burma’s democracy icon and Nobel Peace Prize recipient Aung San Suu Kyi, which he created to raise awareness about the situation in Burma. Fairey drew international acclaim during the 2008 American presidential election for his iconic “HOPE” portrait of Barack Obama.

A special, limited edition print of the image will be available beginning today at noon through Fairey’s website. Proceeds from the sale of this print will benefit the U.S. Campaign for Burma and our partner organization, the Human Rights Action Center.

We are thrilled that Fairey, along with many others on all sides of the political spectrum, has lent his talent to supporting human rights in Burma and we wanted to share the news with you. You can find more information about Fairey’s new design at uscampaignforburma.org/pr/2009-shepardfairey.html or on Fairey’s own site obeygiant.com/.

Aung San Suu Kyi’s selfless devotion to freedom and democracy for the people of Burma continues to inspire us all and we are working dilligently to ensure that she is given the recognition she deserves.

Thank you for your support,

- Jack
