The Dream of Making Human Rights a Reality in Martin Luther King Day (tags)
Summary: In honor of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, volunteers of Youth for Human Rights of Florida celebrates with residents of Florida at the Annual Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Parade. To keep Dr. King’s dream alive, as well as educate the next generation of civic leaders, Youth for Human Rights distributed more than 1100 copies of “The Story of Human Rights” booklet. The printing of these booklets is sponsored by parishioners of the Church of Scientology. “Early in his research into the human spirit, humanitarian and Scientology Founder L. Ron Hubbard emphasized that spiritual freedom and enlightenment were unattainable to people who were denied their fundamental human rights,” said Ms. Kintzel. “He called on all Scientologists to dedicate themselves ‘to support true humanitarian endeavors in the fields of human rights.’ I am very proud that my church, working with like-minded groups can really advocate for human rights.” To find out more about Youth for Human Rights International go to:www.youthforhumanrights.org
