The Killers meets human rights
In December, 2009, released 80 electronic billboards in the Los Angeles area, promoting the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. The billboards were donated by Clear Channel.

On November 30, Mary Wald, Bonnie Abaunza and campaign partners Aid Still Required, organized a photo shoot with celebrities for the billboards with photographer Zoe Zimmer. Participants included Joel Madden, Keith Carradine, Anne Archer, CCH Pounder, Nancy Cartwright, Q’Orianka Kilcher, Priscilla Presley, model Liberty Ross, basketball greats Andrew Bynum and Bill Walton, author of the Pentagon Papers Daniel Ellsberg, Magnum photographer Eli Reed, LA Lakers Josh Powell and D. J. Mbenga, and others.

Documentary filmmaker Jay Rodan brought a camera and compiled a short video about the shoot. The Killers donated the rights to “Human” for the campaign and video.
