Human Rights for All: A Multifaith Call to Action
Date(s) - 12/09/2021
7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
“Where, after all, do universal human rights begin? In small places, close to home–
so close and so small that they cannot be seen on any maps of the world. . . .
Unless these rights have meaning there, they have little meaning anywhere.
Without concerted citizen action to uphold them close to home,
we shall look in vain for progress in the larger world.” – Eleanor Roosevelt
In light of multiple hate messages and incidents recently in our local community, including some that have personally threatened individuals and community leaders, we will gather on the eve of World Human Rights Day to say no to hate and yes to the dignity and worth of every human being.
We will come together from diverse faith and spiritual traditions to stand in solidarity for the human rights of our all people, locally and globally. Amy Morgenstern will be the emcee.
The gathering, which is at First United Methodist Church, 625 Hamilton Avenue, will be in-person with COVID safety requirements and also streamed via YouTube. Participants at the in-person gathering are required to follow these COVID safety practices:
- Wear a mask (covering nose and mouth) and show proof of vaccination.
- All singing will be masked.
- Only speakers, who will be standing more than 10′ away from the gathering, will be unmasked.
The event was recorded and can be viewed here, on First United Methodist’s YouTube channel (event begins at 15:36).Add to: Google Cal, iCal, webcal
