Nashville, TN, September 15, 2018 --(PR.com
)-- The Church of Scientology in partnership with Tennessee United for Human Rights will hold the fourth annual Nashville Celebration of International Day of Peace on September 20, from 5:30-7:30pm, with a large number of religious and cultural leaders, each bringing words of peace from their respective traditions and backgrounds. The event is being dubbed “Speak Your Peace.”
Tennessee United for Human Rights (TUHR) has held an event for International Day of Peace for the past three years, each with a different theme related to the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. TUHR promotes human rights education as a way to combat ignorance and increase awareness. During each of the past three Peace Day events, a different human right has been the focus. This year is the 70th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, since it was signed in 1948, so TUHR wanted to do something on a large scale involving all people.
“Each year we focus on a human rights issue that needs to be brought to light. This year we are proud to bring together a multicultural, multi-faith community of people who can speak to peace on a universal level,” says Rev. Brian Fesler, regional coordinator of the Tennessee United for Human Rights program.
International Day of Peace was declared by the United Nations General Assembly as a day devoted to strengthening the ideals of peace, both within and among all nations and peoples.
The Peace Day event will be held on September 20th at 5:30 pm in the Nashville Church of Scientology community hall.
TNUHR is a chapter of the international organization United for Human Rights, formed on the 60th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights to provide human rights resources and educational materials to all sectors of society.
