This Human Rights Day, Answer the Parliament’s Call to Conscience

December 10th marks the global commemoration of Human Rights Day, observed every year on the day the United Nations General Assembly adopted the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. As I reflect on the successes and challenges of the global interfaith movement in uplifting the freedom and human rights of all peoples; I am filled with the same conviction that inspired us to dedicate the theme for the upcoming Parliament Convening to defend freedom and human rights.

At the Parliament, we are committed to making real progress in equipping attendees and their communities with the knowledge and tools they need to stand resolute in strengthening human rights around the world.

If the continued erosion of freedom and human rights has taught us anything, is that uplifting the dignity of people and our planet requires unwavering commitment and work.

I invite you to answer the Parliament’s call to conscience by committing to attend the 2023 Parliament of the World’s Religions.
