#WeAreManushyan ♾️ Equal Human Beings

You have heard us saying that a lot in recent months. But what does it mean?

❤️ In Sanskrit, Manushya means 'Human Being'. Manushya Foundation (Manushya) was founded in 2017 by Emilie Palamy Pradichit, with the vision to build a movement of Equal Human Beings ∞ #WeAreManushyan ∞ Manushya is an Intersectional Feminist organization reinforcing the power of Humans, in particular local communities and women human rights defenders, to fight for Human Rights, Equality & Justice!

💫 #WeAreManushyan is a movement of change-makers, visionaries, human rights & pro-democracy activists, human rights defenders and many others who believe that we are all Equal Human Beings born with Equal Rights!
