Campaign for human rights
Fr Cedric Prakash led a campaign on Change.org – the world’s fastest-growing platform for social change – telling Chief Minister Prithviraj Chavan to release Arun Ferreira who was re-arrested after he was released from Nagpur Central Jail last November. Ferreira was released from the Jail on 3 January.
Cedric’s campaign received coverage from the Times of India, Hindustan Times, DNA and other major news outlets. “With minimal resources and support, Cedric used his campaign on Change.org to gather support from close to 6,500 people from all over the world,” said Change.org campaigner Tamseel Hussain. “Change.org empowers anyone, anywhere to start a campaign on issues that matter to them, and it has been incredible to watch Cedric mobilise thousands to release Arun Ferreira.”
