(Before It's News)

The Tennessee Celebration of International Human Rights Day occurs on or around December 10 each year, as that is the recognized date for Human Rights Day, as declared by the United Nations. The planning committee for the celebration has just released the theme for the event: Hidden in our Midst—Child Trafficking in Tennessee. This provocative and eye-opening theme will be the focus of the panel discussion and other elements of the event according to planning committee chair, Rev. Brian Fesler who is also pastor of the Church of Scientology.

 

“Human Rights Day is always a time for human rights leaders to come together and inspire the next generation,” he says, “and this year we will shine a light on an atrocity that people need to know about and help address.”  Expert speakers will enlighten and educate the audience on the extent of the problem and solutions in Tennessee.

 

Other components to the event include the presentation of awards to human rights champions in three categories: Rising Advocate, Outstanding Service and Lifetime Achievement. The committee will begin accepting nominations for the 2016 event sometime in early October.

 

The committee is comprised of human rights organizations and nonprofits, including the Tennessee Human Rights Commission, Metro Human Relations Commission, United Nations Association, Amnesty International, Tennessee United for Human Rights, the Church of Scientology and others who work together each year to plan the event.

 

This year’s celebration will take place on December 6, from 5:00 – 7:00 pm at the First Amendment Center. For more information or to get involved, visit tnuhr.org.
