Tennessee Human Rights Day Sets Theme to Focus on Dignity

Posted October 14, 2021 by juliebrinker

The Tennessee Celebration of International Human Rights Day will take place virtually on December 9th.

Tennesseans will gather virtually on December 9th to
celebrate International Human Rights Day. During the event, leaders are
acknowledged, and awards will go to human rights champions in three categories:
Rising Advocate, Outstanding Service and Lifetime Achievement. The planning committee has just announced the
theme of the 2021 event to be “The Universal Declaration of Human Rights: The
Foundation for Dignity,” and will focus on the inherent dignity that human
rights are for each person.  A committee of human rights organizations, nonprofits, and
advocates, including the Tennessee Human Rights Commission, Metro Human
Relations Commission, United Nations Association, Amnesty International,
Tennessee United for Human Rights, the Church of Scientology, and others, work
together each year to plan the event. “Human Rights Day gives the community a chance
to acknowledge advocates and leaders while also learning more about what human
rights really mean for all people,” says planning committee chair Rev. Brian
Fesler, pastor of the Church of Scientology in Nashville.  The event will also have speakers, entertainment
and various exhibits from human rights organizations. All information regarding
the event can be found on the website www.nashvillehumanrights.org.
