Tennessee United for Human Rights Says Freedom of Religion is Key to Peace
The Tennessee chapter of United for Human Rights (TNUHR) is making plans for International Peace Day on September 21st.
Nashville, TN, September 21, 2017 - Tennessee United for Human Rights has a mission to bring human rights education to everyone. And what better way to do this than through discussing these rights at public events? The group has held an event for International Day of Peace for the past two years and will be holding an event again this year on September 21.
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. This is more relevant than ever, and TNUHR is planning an event under the heading "Religious Freedom and What this Means Today."
This is the third annual observance of Peace Day by TNUHR. In 2015, the group organized an eye-opening panel discussion on "Exposing the Hidden World of Human Trafficking," and in 2016, TNUHR held an event under the theme "Know Your Rights and Survive: Overcoming Domestic Violence." Expert panelists spoke about human rights abuses, how to recognize signs of violence and trafficking and how to help someone who may be a victim.
This year, the Peace Day event will be held on September 21st at 7pm in the Nashville Church of Scientology community hall.
Rev. Brian Fesler, regional coordinator of the Tennessee United for Human Rights program says, "We want to inspire peace and educate people about their basic rights. With this knowledge, we can work together to end violence in this country."
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.
