Walk for Your Rights!

by Antonella Antonecchia Thursday, Feb. 24, 2011 at 3:47 PM

It is the violations of basic human rights that occur every day around the world which unites groups like those which will come together in St. Petersburg, Florida to walk and speak out for human rights on Saturday, March 5th, 2011.

United for Human Rights, Florida Coalition Against Human Trafficking, Youth for Human Rights Florida and the Human Rights Group are gearing up for the Human Rights Walkathon 2011.

The Walkathon will be held on Saturday, March 5, 2011 in N. Straub Park, St. Petersburg, FL beginning at 9am. It is a FREE family event, committed to raising awareness about the rights that were set forth and proclaimed in the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights on December 10th, 1948.

Human Right #15, from the Universal Declaration of Human Rights says - “Everyone has the right to a nationality, including that no one shall be arbitrarily deprived of his nationality nor denied the right to change his nationality”.

In many countries around the world people are denied the right to their nationality and their citizenship. The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) estimates that there are about 12 million stateless people around the world. A stateless person is not recognized as a citizen by any state. Citizenship enables a person not only to vote, hold public office, and exit and enter a country freely, but also to obtain housing, health care, employment, and education. It is vital in order to live a decent human life. Stateless people are denied that right.

The Human Rights Walkathon organizers believe that discrimination, war and intolerance can be ended through education.

For more information visit http://www.humanrightswalkathon.org/ or call 727-657-7026.



About the organizers of the Human Rights Walkathon:

The Florida Coalition Against Human Trafficking

The Florida Coalition Against Human Trafficking (FCAHT) is a human trafficking victims advocacy organization created in 2004 by Anna Rodriguez. Ms Rodriguez has extensive experience in how to identify victims, advocating on their behalf, supporting them in their time of need, and assisting them in pursuing justice. She has experience in law enforcement and prosecution of such cases, and familiarity with human trafficking case law.



United for Human Rights

United for Human Rights (UHR) is a not for profit organization that assists and unites individuals, educators, organizations and governmental bodies to implement the Universal Declaration of Human Rights at local, regional, national and international levels. The organization has a wide range of educational materials that include a video entitled “The Story of Human Rights” and an educator’s guide. The material is used in schools, churches, and various civic groups to educate children and adults so that they understand their human rights, and, armed with that knowledge, work to implement and protect those rights. These materials are created in collaboration with the Human Rights Department of the Church of Scientology International.



Youth for Human Rights Florida

Youth for Human Rights Florida is a chapter of Youth for Human Rights International. This is a secular non-profit organization with the purpose to educate people on the Universal Declaration of Human Rights so they become valuable advocates for tolerance and peace. The uniqueness of the program lies in its educational materials. Their educational materials include youth-designed video of the 30 Human Rights, along with the award-winning music video UNITED - a street-savvy, multi-ethnic, five minute film in 15 languages - conveying the power of human rights awareness.



The Human Rights Group

The purpose of the Human Rights Group is to revitalize society by making the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights known and accepted. They work to end modern day slavery and other human rights abuses through enlightening individuals on the rights we all share simply because we are human. They do this through educational outreach and human rights events.
