Human Rights Day, December 10th

Dear Family,

This year marks the 65th anniversary of adoption of the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights, commemorated by the world community each year on December 10th. With the theme “Confronting Solitary Confinement in an Age of Mass Incarceration,” the National Religious Campaign Against Torture invites you and your congregation, campus ministry, or religious organization to lift up the estimated 80,000 brothers and sisters held in solitary confinement in U.S. prisons and detention centers.  Click Here to download their awesome Human Rights Toolkit.

New YAWKAS! The Campaign to Solitary Alternatives in NYC is hosting an action tomorrow, Tuesday, December 10, from 4 – 5 pm in Lower Manhattan’s Foley Square, within sight of several courthouses and detention centers. Get out there and support the campaign to end the use of solitary confinement and to uphold the highest intentions of the Declaration of Human Rights! Click here for further details!

 

 

All Power to the People
