CLEARWATER, FLORIDA, US, September 5, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — December 10th marks the 71st Anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR). Youth for Human Rights is launching a Florida-wide challenge to teach 50,000 youth between now and the month of December their rights outlined in the document. Youth for Human Rights organizes marches, petition drives, art shows and video presentations all over the world in recognition of the International Day of Human Rights on December 10th.
"We want to empower youth to become the humanitarian leaders of tomorrow," said Cristian Vargas, the ED of Youth for Human Rights (YHR) Florida chapter. So far, over a dozen schools and organizations have agreed to take part in this drive. YHR will provide free human rights educational booklets, posters and public service announcements to anyone who wants to participate.
Partnering schools have shown the YHR 30 Rights, 30 Ads PSAs weekly to their student body, or put up the posters all around the schools. They have also read the human rights articles during daily announcements. Other schools and organizations have held marches and hosted seminars using the YHR material, posters and banners.

About Youth for Human Rights Florida:
Youth for Human Rights is an international non-profit, non-religious educational program based off of the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Its purpose is to teach youth their human rights to create valuable advocates for tolerance and peace. Youth for Human Rights is one of eight humanitarian programs the Church of Scientology supports. It was Scientology Founder, L.
