Join us for the Tennessee celebration of International Human Rights Day!
The Tennessee Celebration of International Human Rights Day will take place in Nashville at the First Amendment Center on December 10th, from 5pm – 7pm. The theme for 2019 was chosen to celebrate 100 years of women’s suffrage and is: “Vote on Purpose: The Communal Impact of One Vote.” The event commemorates the ratification of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights by the United Nations on Dec 10, 1948. This year is the 71st anniversary of this important historical document.
During the event, leaders are acknowledged, and awards will go to human rights champions in three categories: Rising Advocate, Outstanding Service and Lifetime Achievement. Past recipients of these prestigious honors can be seen at NashvilleHumanRights.org.
A committee of human rights organizations and nonprofits, including the Tennessee Human Rights Commission, Metro Human Relations Commission, United Nations Association, UNICEF, Amnesty International, Tennessee United for Human Rights, the Church of Scientology, and others, work together each year to plan the event.
International Human Rights Day is ticketed at $10, with proceeds going to fund students attending Model UN.
