HUMAN RIGHTS: MORE THAN A MOVEMENT
Friday, December 13, 2013 from 9:30 AM to 11:30 AM (CST)
The Illinois Department of Human Rights cordially invites you to attend our Human Rights Day Celebration “Human Rights: More than a Movement,” an LGBT-focused panel discussion that will offer an opportunity to:
- hear from individuals who have dedicated their lives to equality,
- a moment to reflect on commitments made over the years to advance the rights of all persons, and
- an opportunity to ask ourselves what actions we can take today to fully implement human rights in our own communities.
Celebrate Human Rights Day with us as we commemorate the 20th anniversary of the establishment of the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights, which renewed the effort for the promotion and protection of all human rights.
We will also celebrate the 34th anniversary of the passage of the Illinois Human Rights Act, which bars discrimination based on
race, color, religion, sex (including sexual harassment), national origin, ancestry, age (40 and over), order of protection status, marital status, physical or mental disability, military status, sexual orientation (including gender-related identity), order of protection status, or unfavorable discharge from military service.
FREE REGISTRATION VIA EVENTBRITE ONLY.
Note: Registration, networking and light refreshments from 8:30am – 9:30am. Valid government issued picture ID necessary for entry into the building. Security screening required.
