Join us for the Tennessee Celebration of International Human Rights Day!

Tennesseans gather each year to celebrate International Human Rights Day. This year, the event will be held virtually. During the event, leaders are acknowledged and awards will go to human rights champions in three categories: Rising Advocate, Outstanding Service, and Lifetime Achievement.

A committee of human rights organizations, nonprofits, and advocates, including the Tennessee Human Rights Commission, Metro Human Relations Commission, Tennessee United for Human Rights, the Church of Scientology, and others, work together each year to plan the event.

“Each year on Human Rights Day we look at challenges–those we have overcome and those we face. We hope that a brief look at our victories will give us the hope and strength to reach into the future,” says planning committee chair Rev. Brian Fesler, pastor of the Church of Scientology in Nashville. “The day centers around the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, and this year we focus on human rights as the foundation for dignity.”
