Join us for the Tennessee celebration of International Human Rights Day!
International Human Rights Day occurs every year to commemorate the ratification of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights by the United Nations on Dec 10, 1948. In Tennessee, Human Rights Day has become a day to reflect and look at lessons learned and battles won, while various human rights groups join forces and commit to creating an even better future.
Tennessee will celebrate Human Rights Day on December 11, 2018 in Nashville. The day begins at 5:00pm, with a reception and exhibits by human rights organizations. Then at 6:00pm, the presentations and awards will begin. Speakers will discuss various human rights topics related to the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Awards will be presented for lifetime achievement and outstanding service in the field of human rights, along with recognition of rising advocates.
The planning committee is accepting nominations for awards and registrations for information tables to appear at the event, and it has issued a call to student artists for works depicting the articles of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Educators and youth group leaders should consider having their high-school aged students study the Declaration and submit works of art!
