How Celebrities are Making a Difference for Human Rights: The Enough Project Launches Celebrity Upstanders DatabaseJul 28, 2011
Celebrities are becoming a significant contributing factor to human rights advocacy in Africa.
"Celebrities who use their fame to highlight the plight of some of the world's most vulnerable people are making a real difference.

By recruiting thousands of people to relatively unknown causes, they help create a real pressure for change,” said Co-founder of the Enough Project John Prendergast, who works closely with many of the organization’s celebrity partners.
To highlight celebrities who have partnered to date with the Enough Project on various campaigns and initiatives, the Enough Project has launched an online Celebrity Upstanders database.
