Event description

Description


Building on the success of the 2016 York Human Rights Indicator Report, you are kindly invited to the launch of the second annual report, to be held at the Main Hall of the Priory Street Centre, 15 Priory Street on Thursday 7th December 2017. The Right Honourable Lord Mayor of York will open the evening at 7:00pm, with tea and coffee with mince pies available from 6:30pm.


Why Human Rights?


Human Rights matter in York. In 2015, York residents and organisations identified their priorities to be the right to education, a decent standard of living, housing, health and social care, and equality and non-discrimination.

The York Human Rights City Network has developed what will be a regular report that monitors progress on the protection and fulfilment of York's priority rights using indicators from York specific data. Our aim is to start a different kind of conversation about human rights, a positive one: ensuring that human rights relate to everyday concerns, close to home, and are more locally informed. We believe that in York human rights provide protection and a means of problem solving for all.

Building on York's history of democracy, social justice and philanthropy, this event will serve as a platform to bring together individuals and organisations from across York as a means to start talking about rights and what we can all do to make York a vibrant, diverse, fair, safe and international city.

Join us for a discussion about how the Indicator Report can be of use to you and your work.
