Help the Humanist Service Corps Raise Awareness

Educate yourself. Educate others.

The Humanist Service Corps uses social media, blogs, and a monthly newsletter to raise awareness of witch-hunting and to provide a platform for victims of gender-based violence and discrimination to tell their stories.

You can support this work by following the Humanist Service Corps on Twitter, liking the Humanist Service Corps page on Facebook, subscribing to the Humanist Service Corps newsletter, and sharing information about witch-hunting with your personal networks.

If you would like to take a more active role in raising awareness about witch-hunting, you may wish to start with information from the resources below.
