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 live and in-person! 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, Scarritt Bennett Center, 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 the year past and the years ahead. We thank those whose work has brought us into today, and encourage those who will take us to a bright 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 advancing these rights for everyone.”
