Within the African American church, Watch Night has served as a time for reflection and to recommit to combating the restraints of enslavement and racism. Join us and religious leaders from the Greater Cincinnati area as we commemorate the anniversary of a tradition that embodies courage, cooperation and perseverance. The program is presented in conjunction with the Rev. Dr. Fred Shuttlesworth’s Chapter of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference and the Cincinnati Human Relations Committee.

      Join
      the Cincinnati Human Relations Commission as we celebrate “Human Rights Day” on
      today, December 10, 2014.
      This year’s slogan, Human Rights 365, encompasses the idea that every day is
      Human Rights Day. It celebrates the fundamental proposition in the Universal
      Declaration that each one of us, everywhere, at all times is entitled to the
      full range of human rights, that human rights belong equally to each of us and
      bind us together as a global community with the same ideals and values.
      The
      United Nations General Assembly proclaimed the 10th day of December
      as Human Rights Day in 1950, to bring to the attention ‘of the peoples of the
      world’ the Universal Declaration of Human Rights as the common standard of
      achievement for all peoples and all nations. 

      CHRC’s
      mission is “to help our community to overcome prejudice and discrimination,
      build mutual respect and understanding, and become more harmonious and
      cohesive.” This mission can only be complete with the understanding that
      we all are entitled to equal human rights no matter our race, class, or
      gender. 

      We encourage you to join us
      and take a stand against inequality and discrimination in our community. Let’s
      make every day human rights day! #rights365

      Mrs. Althea Barnett will graduate from Closing the Health Gap’s:

      Community Engagement Academy
      Thursday, December 11, 6:00 – 8:00 PM
      Gabriel’s Place
      3618 Reading Road
      Cincinnati, OH 45229

      The purpose of the Community Engagement Academy (CEA) is to train community members to become community leaders. Community Engagement is defined as the process of working collaboratively with groups of people affiliated by geography, special interests, or issues affecting their wellbeing. It is only through this collaborative work that issues affecting communities will be solved.
      During the four months of the leadership academy, you learn steps to work together to make positive change by promoting citizen participation and planning actions which will lead to accomplishing needed change and positive results in your neighborhood.

      Again, CONGRATULATIONS Althea!
