SHAPING THE FUTURE
Building a culture of human rights and human dignity is our common and collective responsibility. For the past year, the AHRC team: board members, volunteers and student interns, have been working diligently on behalf the cause of human rights and particularly on issues related to prisons and prisoners’ rights. AHRC took it upon itself to help work towards a world free of torture, injustice and despair. We continue to tirelessly advocate on matters of human rights locally, nationally and internationally. Today, we all recognize that our world is experiencing serious human rights violations that shake our consciousness. To be silent is by default to be part of the problem; to advocate and struggle for respect of the human rights of each and every person is part of the solution.
Today, we all are witnessing the drastic increase of hate and the drastic increase in anti- Muslim and anti- Arab rhetoric, and to a lesser degree acts, in America. We all stand united against hate. In this spirit of facing common challenges and our common efforts facing them, the AHRC entire team urge you to join us at our AHRC Semi -Annual Fundraiser Dinner Reception that will be held on Friday April 10, 2015 at 6:00 p.m. at Byblos Banquet Center in Dearborn. Your presence and your active participation with us is an attestation of our unity in confronting hate and human rights abuses. It is a time for renewal of our commitment to the advocacy of and promotion of human rights in the US and abroad
I hope that you would join us on Friday April 10 at Byblos. I look forward to personally welcoming you to Protecting Our Humanity Dinner.
