Thor Halvorssen may not be a household name, but he is quickly becoming more recognized. The native Venezuelan is quickly establishing himself as a champion of human rights. He has helped give a voice to those who do not have one through various media outlets. Thor is becoming a renowned writer as he has published many articles, stories, and opinion pieces through many media outlets including popular newspaper agencies and magazine companies.
Another avenue that Thor has established his credibility as a advocate of human rights is through filmography as he has produced or been involved in several films. His films often depict struggles of human nature and give a greater voice in reaching a larger audience and awareness of human suffrage.
Thor has also founded or been a part of several foundations and organizations that are also dedicated to human rights advocacy. He is currently President of the Human Rights Foundation, which strives to help in human rights.
Thor has a vast background founded in a well rounded education from both schooling and his parents. He attended the University of Pennsylvania where he graduated in Political Science and History.
Thor also learned from his parents how to advocate for human rights as they both nearly lost there lives in trying to do what is right to ease human suffrage. His mother was shot at a peace rally when armed guards opened fire in Venezuela on an unarmed crowd. His father was imprisoned and tortured under suspicion of terrorism in Columbia when really he was trying to combat cartel drug trafficking.
Thor is quickly establishing himself as a voice for others less fortunate. As a film producer, perhaps one day he will do a story on his own life and the changes he has helped bring about.
