Nashville, TN, May 05, 2018 --(PR.com
)-- Organizers for Tennessee United for Human Rights point out that Article 2 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights states: “Everyone is entitled to all the rights and freedoms set forth in this Declaration, without distinction of any kind, such as race, color, sex, language, religion, political or other opinion, national or social origin, property, birth or other status.” As such, they made it a point to stand with human rights advocates, organizations and citizens to raise awareness about the negative impact of institutional and structural racism in our communities during the YWCA’s annual Stand Against Racism event.
In order for human rights to be upheld and protected, they must be known. That is why Tennessee United for Human Rights’ main purpose is to educate people on their basic rights.
Tennessee United for Human Rights (TUHR) was formed as a non-profit public benefit corporation in 2015 to provide education and materials to Tennesseans. Since that time, the Tennessee chapter of the international non-profit United for Human Rights has delivered seminars, participated in events and raised awareness of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights across the state.
During the Stand Against Racism, TUHR volunteers distributed human rights educational materials, newsletters and booklets.
United for Human Rights provides materials that visualize the complete history of human rights, break down of the individual points of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, and show how people can protect themselves with this knowledge.
United for Human Rights was founded on the Declaration’s 60th anniversary, in the face of continued worldwide abuses which violate the spirit, intent and Articles of this charter of all human rights, the first such document ever ratified by the community of nations. 2018 marks the 70th anniversary of the document and the 10th anniversary of United for Human Rights’ formation.
