Special Message from Professor Michael T Thomas, Sr., AHRC Executive Board Member
Today, more than any other time in America, we are faced with the battle of ensuring human dignity and human rights for everyone. Too many incidents have chipped away our sense of recognizing that our mutual humanity and rights will be conserved. As one of the founding members of the AHRC, I am working diligently on behalf of the cause of Human Rights and particularly issues related to young men, prisons, and prisoners’ rights. I frequently wonder how great and peaceful our world would be free of torture, injustice, profiling, and hatred. It is my hope that my grandkids will see a world free of those horrible things! I am working to ensure that day. Will you join with me?
In the spirit of common humanity, the AHRC entire team and I urge you to join us at our AHRC semi Annual Fund Raiser 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 in this event will assist the AHRC in part of its mission to combat ignorance, injustice and hatred.
Again, I strongly urge you to join me and others in renewing the hope and advance the state of Human Rights in America.
Please contact our AHRC office at 313-914-3251 or visit the AHRC website at www.ahrcusa.org for more information or to donate. Thank you for your time and thank you for your kind consideration.
