Nashville, TN, September 25, 2019 --(PR.com
)-- The Church of Scientology Nashville in partnership with Tennessee United for Human Rights held the fifth annual Nashville Celebration of International Day of Peace in late September with a large number of religious and cultural leaders, each bringing words of peace from their respective traditions and backgrounds.
Participating were representatives of the LDS Church, AME Church, Sikh Faith, Baha’i Faith, Jewish, Muslim and more.
Tennessee United for Human Rights (TUHR) has held an event for International Day of Peace for the past four 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 Peace Day events, a different human right has been the focus.
“Each year we focus on a human rights issue that needs to be brought to light. This year we brought together a multicultural, multi-faith community of people who spoke of 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.
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.
