Emergency Response Network (ERN):

This is a collective method of addressing issues of abuse or torture. HRC uses its Facebook and Email to alert all members of our Emergency Response Network of reported and confirmed prisoner abuses and/or violations of human rights. To stand up against such violations we bring public awareness, by sharing on social media, calling or writing to the prison, newspapers, radio, or legislators. If you would like to participate in calling the prisons, please forward your email address to be notified.
