Demme Durrett

Event Founder

I am a 2015 graduate of The John Cooper School in The Woodlands, and in the fall will be attending Barnard College-Columbia University in New York City.  In 2011, as my project for the Gold Award in the Girl Scouts organization, the highest achievement you can earn, I set my attention on creating and holding a very fun and meaningful event in our community, to help raise awareness about Human Rights education in an effort to bring more peace and tolerance in the world and help reduce human rights violations.

I am very proud to say that each year since 2011, our Human Rights Walk and Festival has been the largest Human Rights Day celebration in the United States, all due to the tremendous support from our wonderful community. And thus, it has become an annual event. 

Human Rights are important for everyone to be completely familiar with. In the US we may think that violations of human right are not much of an issue, but nothing could be further from the truth. Things like Human Trafficking, which is modern day slavery, cyber-bullying, discrimination, and religious intolerance, just to name a few, can be seen in our own community on a daily basis.

My goal with this fun and exciting event is to continue to help raise awareness so that we can apply ALL of the 30 Basic Human Rights as set out by the United Nations, under the direction of Eleanor Roosevelt, over sixty years ago.  At the event, we also sign a petition to encourage all governments to give the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the force of law in countries where they do not exist.

 

This year, I am very happy to welcome to our team as Major Sponsor and Director, IEDA Relief, under the expert direction of Alice Helbing.  IEDA Relif is an NGO that works to help communitues all over the world to become self suffient.  With their stong support of the Human Rights Walk and Festival, we have been able to expand the event to both Houston and The Woodlands this year.

 

Thank you for your help in assisting us with the continued success of this project, as well as making a positive impact in the world we all share!

... Demme
