The debate on human
rights has achieved a global audience in the 21st century. Amid all
the anarchy and hate, authorities on human rights keep a watchful eye
on developments worldwide making sure the rights of every person are
respected, and violators are brought to justice.
Step forward Thor
Halvorrsen, a young and energetic human rights crusader based in
New-York, United States. This leader is synonymous with the campaigns
fronted by the Human Rights Foundation Organization. Thor dedicates
his life and time to the organization, and he has done exemplary well
in championing the human rights debate.
Thor commands great
respect in the corporate and social circles. His stay at HFR sees him
lobby relentlessly for financial and moral support. Each year, the
foundation hosts the Oslo Freedom Forum in Norway. The event attracts
journalists, community mobilizers and human rights lawyers and
campaigners from all over the globe. The function also serves as a
fundraiser towards various human rights courses. In the past, Thor
has been able to get senior partners in Google and Paypal to attend
the event and make keynote speeches on human rights.
On a personal level,
Thor Halvorssen is a friendly and approachable fellow. He confesses
his love for people and acknowledges the power of the human spirit.
He, therefore, defends the rights of individuals who go out of their
way to point out wrongs in society and governments. He believes such authorities have no place in the modern
world and should, therefore, face the wrath of the entire world.
When it comes to
diversity, Thor believes we should appreciate our differences and
accommodate each other’s views. That is the only way to desist from
infringing on the rights of others. Thor embraces diversity starting
from his lineage. His grandfather was of Norwegian descent while his
mother was Venezuelan. His parents suffered torture and incarceration
in the hands of brutal regimes in Venezuela. Many believe these
events made Thor conscious of human rights and their violations,
therefore, sparking the fire in him to defend the oppressed.
