Human Rights Month

 

Human Rights Lecture V3Join Equality Illinois this Sunday at an important lecture for Human Rights Month: “If Not Now, When? Pursuing Global Justice to Mend Our Broken World.”

Around the globe, women, girls and LGBT people are often treated as second-class citizens, facing rampant discrimination, violence and routine violations of their human rights. They are denied access to education, jobs and health services, are at heightened risk for HIV and AIDS and, in some places, fear for their lives.

Join Ruth Messinger, president of the American Jewish World Service, to understand these global challenges and learn what we can do, here in the United States, to ensure that marginalized people in Africa, Asia, Latin America and the Caribbean can live with health, safety and dignity.

Equality Illinois is a proud partner of this presentation at the Illinois Holocaust Museum.

To attend this important program, registration is required.
