Tennessee United for Human Rights wants to lift up all people to bring about change and justice in the world.
Online PR News – 20-November-2020 – Nashville, TN – Tennessee United For Human Rights is passionate about helping people learn their basic rights to spread peace and justice into a world racked with confusion and hostility. “During the most difficult of times, we are spreading positive messages to let people know their basic human rights,” says Julie Brinker, a spokesperson for TnUHR. “Human Rights are universal and belong to every human being regardless of religion, race or national origin.”
The organization is offering free resources online to educate people on basic human rights using award-winning audio visual messages and downloadable materials.
TnUHR was formed as a nonprofit public benefit corporation in 2015 to educate Tennesseans on the basic principles and foundations of human rights. It is the local chapter of United for Human Rights, an international, not-for-profit organization dedicated to implementing the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Its membership is comprised of individuals, educators and groups throughout the world who actively forward the knowledge and protection of human rights by and for all mankind.
TnUHR regularly holds events on the topics of peace, justice and human rights. During 2020, in-person events are suspended, but virtual events remain as a way to bring people together. The organization is currently co-organizing Human Rights Day to take place in early December online.
United for Human Rights was founded on the 60th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the first such document ever ratified by the community of nations. Then as now, continued worldwide human rights abuses violate the spirit, intent and articles of this charter. United for Human Rights is committed to advancing human rights through education. An understanding of the 30 rights enshrined in the document is the first step to bringing about their broad implementation.
