    NASHVILLE, TN, October 15, 2012 /24-7PressRelease/ -- The Universal Declaration of Human Rights originated from the United Nations in 1948. So it is fitting that the United Nations Association has now joined in the planning for the Tennessee Human Rights Day celebration this year.

Chair of the Planning Committee, Rev. Brian Fesler said, "We are so happy to welcome the United Nations Association, Nashville Cordell Hull Chapter, to the table again this year. This event is only possible because of the United Nations decision to create the Universal Declaration of Human Rights after World War II."

International Human Rights Day occurs every year to commemorate the ratification of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) by the United Nations on Dec 10, 1948. In Tennessee, Human Rights Day is a day to learn and educate others on these basic rights, while various human rights groups join forces and commit to creating an even better future.

The Human Rights Day celebration is scheduled for December 10 in Tennessee, and will include informational booths, speakers, awards, entertainment and more. Fesler explained the celebration: "We are aiming to provide tools to educate those who don't know their rights. If people don't know their rights, they will be violated - the answer is education."

The committee plans to feature many different human rights organizations, especially the Tennessee governmental and non-profit agencies that have commitments to the thirty rights as laid out in the UDHR.

The planning committee is now composed of the Tennessee Human Rights Commission, Metro Human Relations Commission, Church of Scientology, United Nations Association, AFL-CIO Labor Council, Women On Maintaining Education and Nutrition and the American Center for Outreach.
