WE are now launching a new form of celebrating Human Rights day :join us!

Join the celebration and affirmation of the “30 Points of Dignit

--The Universal Declaration of Human Rights

We call on you to organize on the 10th of December, 2012, the celebration of what we call “The 30 Points of Dignity”. This is the first such annual event around the world to take place on the 10th of December --International Human Rights Day. This year we will be celebration of the 64th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR).

This yearly tradition will have your school or university designate, in as many classrooms as possible, one hour, on December 10th , where all will read aloud the short version of the UDHR (see attached) – to be translated into your own language.

Following this collective, out loud reading in class, a discussion can be held in groups or in public assemblies, about the meaning and relevance of human rights to the lives of the readers.

This one hour is to become a vital step for the reader to take ownership of these powerful words and the powerful ideals behind the vision of what it means to be human thus recognizing the humanity of others as our own.

Everyone in the classroom or gathering, whether they read out loud or not, should have a copy of the short version to take away with them. This will enable them to refer to: The 30 points of dignity which they will now know and claim as their own. When this powerful document rests in their hands it has the power to unleash a sense of ownership and purpose, i.e., learning to belong in community and in dignity with others.

The groups reciting the short version can be large or small. Anyone can organize such an activity. Anyone can encourage his or her school, university or organization to take part in reciting and discussing for one hour The 30 Points Dignity. .
