“Racism is ignorance and it’s been going around for a long time. If we don’t so anything about it now, it will continue to be around for generations. We have to deal with it.” Quote from youth.
What is racism? What are our human rights, and how do we create an environment in which all rights are respected. These are some of the concepts the American Friends Service Committee, (AFSC) Racial Justice Through Human Rights youth group have been learning about and reflecting on.
On December 10, 1948 the General Assembly of the United Nations adopted and proclaimed the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Join us for an evening of song, poetry, music, dance and visual arts to commemorate this historic event.
