Why is Common Values important?
We believe in fundamental rights and freedoms - shared values that protect every member of the human family and the society we seek to build together.
In the UK the Human Rights Act protects us all - old and young, rich and poor, you and me. It is especially important for vulnerable people but you never know when you might need to use the protection of the Human Rights Act.

Tell me more about Common Values
Liberty's Common Values campaign has three aims:
- Broaden understanding of human rights. People need to know what their rights are and why they are important. See What are human rights? for more information.
- Increase respect for human rights by showing where the Human Rights Act has been used to get a better deal from public services for vulnerable people.
- Counter some of the damaging myths and false information that exist around human rights law - see our Human Rights Act myths page.
