Join us on the Eve of World Human Rights Day, for
Human Rights for All: A Multifaith Call to Action
Thursday, December 9, 7pm
First United Methodist Church
625 Hamilton Ave., Palo Alto
The gathering will be in-person with COVID safety requirements and also streamed via youtube.

We will come together from diverse faith and spiritual traditions to stand in solidarity for the human rights of our all people, locally and globally.

In light of multiple hate messages and incidents in our local community, including some personally threatening individuals and community leaders, we will gather on the Eve of World Human Rights Day to say NO to hate and YES to the dignity and worth of every human being.

"Where, after all, do universal human rights begin?
In small places, close to home -- so close and so small that they cannot be seen on any maps of the world. ...
Unless these rights have meaning there, they have little meaning anywhere.
Without concerted citizen action to uphold them close to home, we shall look in vain for progress in the larger world."
- Eleanor Roosevelt
