On Friday, October 21, 2016 at 6:00 p.m., the American Human Rights Council (AHRC-USA) will be holding its kick-off dinner reception that will be held at Byblos Banquet Hall in Dearborn, MI. The reception will serve as the occasion to launch this unique and special Scholarship Program that will be fully implemented in the year 2017. The AHRC-USA Educational Committee will present a preview of this program to invited guests. One of the primary goals of this unique program is to help students focus on the concept of “Our Common Humanity” — an Alliance of Civilizations inspired concept — and recognize its power in advancing our humanity’s common future.
The scholarship program is inspired by the work of the United Nations Alliance of Civilizations, a program and platform of the United Nations to promote understanding of diversity and intercultural dialogue. AHRC’s “Our Common Humanity” Scholarship Program is limited to undergraduate college and university students, is an annual essay contest about the concept of Alliance of Civilizations as it compares to the Conflict of Civilizations hypothesis. It will emphasize the commonalities among peoples and their diverse civilizations, and how such rich multicultural make-up helps advance our common humanity with our shared world and our shared future as humans — beyond race, color, faith, gender, ethnicity or national origin
AHRC-USA hopes that this unique program will help promote awareness among college students of the importance of thinking globally of the themes of diversity, inclusion, and multicultural collaboration as they relate to human rights.
