CLEARWATER, Fla. - eTradeWire -- To cap off their most successful year to date, United for Human Rights Florida chapter will be holding their annual celebration of International Human Rights Day 2020. The event will be live-streamed on their Facebook page on Saturday, December 5th, starting at 6:30pm. Awards will be presented to professors from schools and colleges, non-profit organization leaders, government officials and community advocates who have been promoting human rights throughout the year.

Since the beginning of 2020, more than 1 million people in Florida have been educated on their 30 inalienable rights by United for Human Rights (UHR) Florida chapter's activities and outreach efforts. UHR has partnered with 100 other organizations and have delivered dozens of webinars, seminars and events.

Cristian Vargas, the Executive Director of the UHR Florida chapter said, "A look at today's headlines will confirm that there is a basic lack of human rights knowledge in our society. So how can people respect and enforce them if they don't know what they are? United for Human Rights provides educational materials which empower individuals and gives them the knowledge to change a community."

United for Human Rights is an international non-profit, non-religious educational program based on the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Its purpose is to teach youth their human rights and to create valuable advocates for tolerance and peace. United for Human Rights is one of eight humanitarian programs the Church of Scientology supports. It was Scientology Founder, L. Ron Hubbard who said, "Human rights must be made a fact, not an idealistic dream." This is why the Church sponsors UHR, although UHR remains non-religious in nature and content.
