Youth for Human Rights Launches Their Free Educational Summer Seminar Series in an Effort to Reduce Discrimination and Abuses of Human Rights.

Together we hope to spread a message of peace, unity, and human rights for all.”
— Erica Rodgers, Director of the National Office of Youth for Human Rights

WASHINGTON, DC, USA, June 18, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ -- Current events around the country have shown the world that communities must work together to protect the rights of all people, not simply a chosen few.

In an effort to help fight against discrimination, violence and other abuses, Youth for Human Rights Washington, DC, volunteers launched their 10-week summer human rights awareness education campaign.

Using the Youth for Human Rights (YHR) educational curriculum, each seminar addresses three of the human rights articles listed in the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR). The seminars are interactive with each article discussed in detail in relation to present day human rights situations.

“Together we hope to spread a message of peace, unity, and human rights for all,” said Erica Rodgers, Director of the National Office of Youth for Human Rights and one of the organizers of the summer series.

The interactive seminars are open to all, youth and adults alike from Washington, DC, and other areas of the country every Thursday night at 7PM EDT through August 20th. The 30-minute seminar will be followed by a Q&A discussion period.

“In pre-COVID-19 times our seminars were held in person at various venues including the National Affairs Office of the Church of Scientology. This year with their help we are seeing each other via webinar. The seminars are perfect for preteens to seniors, educators and parents, or anyone who would like to learn more about what human rights are,” concluded Ms. Rodgers.

Those interested can join the webinar from a computer, tablet, or smartphone:
