70th Anniversary of the Universal Declaration of the Human Rights


Rock for Human Rights


in honor of the 70th Anniversary of the Universal
Declaration of the Human Rights


 


Tampa, FL – On December 10, Youth for Human Rights Tampa held a dinner concert to raise the awareness of Human Rights in the Chapel of the Church of Scientology of Tampa.


 


Mr. Christopher King, grandson of Blues Legend B.B. King, served as the Keynote speaker and spoke about his Gentlemen’s Course. Since last year he has educated over 1,500 youth in Hillsborough/Pinellas/Pasco schools on his introductory course on etiquette and human rights. The Gentlemen’s Course partners with United for Human Rights, an international non-profit sponsored by the Church of Scientology, focused on educating youth on the Universal Declaration of Human Rights to inspire them to become advocates for peace and tolerance.


 


Mr. King was followed by WD-Han, an award winning, alternative, indie rock band based in Tampa Bay. They introduced the Human Rights Articles combined with their music to moving results. WD-HAN currently has 2 albums released and have played with many notable bands at well-known festivals. Their dedication to promoting Human Rights has taken them across the globe, including as far away as Taiwan.


 


The emcee closed the event with this quote from Mr. L. Ron Hubbard, Founder of Scientology: “Human rights must be made a fact, not an idealistic dream.”


 


Youth for Human Rights is an international non-profit, non-religious educational program based off of the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Its purpose is to teach youth their human rights to create valuable advocates for tolerance and peace. Youth for Human Rights is one of eight humanitarian programs the Church of Scientology supports.
