Stand Up for Human Rights This Saturday at the State Capitol
To mark the beginning of a year-long campaign to celebrate and commit Connecticut to Human Rights advocacy, the CT Human Rights Partnership is having a #StandUp4HumanRightsCT kickoff rally in Hartford this Saturday, September 8th.
The campaign aligns with the United Nations campaign of the same title and commemorates the 70th Anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
From 1-3 p.m. at the State Capitol, speakers from across Connecticut will share perspectives on how human rights are being advanced in our communities and outline the work still to be done. There will be music and spoken-word performances, as well as information on how to continue the work in your own local community.
