After seven months of human rights education and rights monitoring across seven hotspot counties, 69 ward-level community dialogues and national engagement, our team will take a wellness break between 8-11 August 2022 to re-charge and vote. We will work remotely and return to our physical office on Monday, 22nd August 2022.

Why does your vote matter?
We call on you and your family to come out and vote. The universal right to vote took four decades for Kenyans to attain. Exercising this right honours those that fought for us. It is also your civic duty. In an election, the vote is the only thing that counts. If we fail to vote, others will choose the next 47+1 governments for us. A high turnout avoids the possibility and cost of an election re-run. Save time by checking your status and polling station stream here https://verify.iebc.or.ke.
We encourage you to follow and use these hashtags #TusibleedNdioWalead #ElectionsBilaNoma #FumbuaUkweli over this period. Disinformation is real. Let’s keep ourselves informed with facts, not propaganda.
Lastly, as you prepare to vote for the six candidates of your choice, we invite you to:
- read our recent Jubilee Human Rights Scorecard (2013-2022), and
- listen to human rights defenders Maimouna, Hussein, Toure and Wilson below.
We wish you a safe electioneering period. In solidarity,
