In Pursuit of Peace and Dignity: Navigating Human Rights, Global Politics, and Digital Frontiers on Human Rights Day 2023
From the Organizers:
Join us on Human Rights Day 2023 for a poignant exploration of our shared humanity. Amidst the tumult of global conflicts in the Middle East, Africa, and Europe, this event delves into the relentless assault on human rights. Through gripping narratives and thought-provoking discussions, comedy, and music we aim to unveil the pain echoing across continents. Yet, within this darkness, we aim to discover glimmers of hope that illuminate a path towards a future where dignity prevails. Stand with us, embrace the urgency, and let’s collectively envision a world where human rights are not just given lip service but defended and celebrated. Featuring:
