"Having the visiting human rights defenders in the City of York has been an inspiration. They have brought to us their experiences of working for human rights in challenging environments. They have helped us to look at our society through a human rights lens and in so doing have created a link between the local and the global, and shown us that a human rights framework provides us with a shared set of values to which we can all aspire." - Stephen Pittam, Trust Secretary, The Joseph Rowntree Charitable Trust
