Scientology Founder L. Ron Hubbard wrote, “Human rights must be made a fact, not an idealistic dream.”
“Scientology: How We Help—United for Human Rights, Making Human Rights a Global Reality,” details how communities are using the Church of Scientology’s United for Human Rights program to fight abuses in this field.
The Nashville Church of Scientology Pastor, Rev. Brian Fesler, who chairs the Human Rights Day celebration in Tennessee, says, “Education is the first step. People have to learn that ‘human rights’ as a topic even exists and know their rights before they can do anything effective in implementation.”
The United for Human Rights program is based on the fact that without basic human rights known and understood across the planet, forward progress cannot occur. The campaign is designed to raise awareness and respect for human rights by educating the population and simultaneously persuading governments to uphold the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
The United for Human Rights program includes education materials with booklets on What Are Human Rights? and the Story of Human Rights, the Story of Human Rights short film and the 30 public service announcements which illustrate each of the points to the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Further, the complete education package contains all of these things plus a complete curriculum that educators can use in classrooms. The humanrights.com website is an interactive learning center complete with information including all videos and downloadable materials. Lastly, a virtual education program is available as an app downloadable for iPhones and iPads.
The Church of Scientology supports United for Human Rights, the world’s largest nongovernmental human rights educational campaign. For more information about United for Human Rights, visit humanrights.com.
