Multathlon to raise awareness of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights

Multathlon to raise awareness of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights

Our society faces many challenges. Terrorism, civil disturbances, national conflicts and threats to the environment are among the most serious.

These situations affect every one of us, and the responsibility for dealing with them cannot be left to governments alone.

Probably the single most valuable action that could be taken by men and women of goodwill in 2006, to create the better world that we all desire, would be to do everything they can to advance human rights within their sphere of influence.

The Universal Declaration of Human Rights embraces every member of the human family. Yet surveys have found that even in democratic nations, it is little known.

Bringing about greater awareness and application of human rights by leaders and the public at large is a vital component of any effort to bring peace to the world and to free society from the consequences of intolerance.

To that end, the Church of Scientology International has produced many publications, films, PSAs and a teaching handbook on the subject of human rights. We will be releasing and distributing these materials in numerous languages and throughout the world’s cultures as 2006 rolls out.

We encourage everyone to make a difference by helping to foster a culture of human rights and thus lay the foundation for real trust between people in their communities.

As the founder of the Scientology religion, L. Ron Hubbard, observed, “On the day when we can fully trust each other, there will be peace on earth.”
