The Nashville Church of Scientology supports initiatives to make human rights a reality for all. On September 21st, the church will host a panel discussion to this goal.
International Day of Peace (“Peace Day”) is observed around the world each year on 21 September. Established in 1981 by resolution 36/37, the United Nations General Assembly declared this a day devoted to strengthening the ideals of peace, both within and among all nations and peoples. So it is that the Nashville Church of Scientology will hold a panel discussion aimed at raising awareness of and increased work toward these goals on this day.
The event is titled “Exposing the Hidden World of Human Trafficking,” and will bring together organizations that work day in and day out on eradicating the problem. Clemmie Greenlee, Founder of the Nashville Peacemakers, and Allasone Lita G., CEO and Founder of All Is One, will be featured speakers and panelists, with additional panelists to be announced.
The Church of Scientology is hosting the discussion because of its dedication to making human rights a reality. Throughout the church’s creed, it is clear the level of dedication founder L. Ron Hubbard had to basic human rights. In fact, the creed begins: “We of the Church believe that all men of whatever race, color or creed were created with equal rights.”
The Church works with Youth for Human Rights to bring human rights education to young people. Youth for Human Rights has a vast program 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 Youth for Human Rights program includes 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. All materials are available to educators through humanrights.com, where they will also find an interactive learning center.
The Church of Scientology welcomes individuals and groups to its Open House and panel discussion on International Day of Peace, Sept 21st at 1130 8th Avenue South in Nashville, Tennessee. For more information, visit scientology-ccnashville.org.
