Nawal Benaissa speaks out for better health care and social justice.

She is one of the leading voices of Hirak, a popular movement in Morocco. She is persecuted for her work campaigning for change. Authorities have attempted to silence her, arresting her several times and forcing her to shut down her Facebook page where she has 80,000 followers.

Nawal has been held in custody 4 times in 4 months. She has even had to move because she's being surveilled. This is a common experience for people in Morocco who speak out for human rights. 

Ask Morocco to stop harassing Nawal.
