In 1948, the United Nations General Assembly adopted the Universal Declaration of Human Rights outlining a broad range of fundamental rights and freedoms to which all men and women, without distinction are entitled to everywhere in the world. As communities across the United States and the world celebrate this day, in Arlington, immigrant communities, and their US citizen family members and friends, come together to call for an to end family separation and urge the President to lead the fight for comprehensive immigration reform with a pathway to citizenship.
Adults, children, teens, the elderly and all members of the community are invited to celebrate this important day. This is an opportunity for members of the community to learn about their Human Rights, regardless of immigration status. The event will include a group of experts and attorneys who will discuss and answer questions about human rights at the workplace, women's rights, rights when detained by law enforcement, and civil rights, among others.
The entire community is invited to attend and be part of this historic event in Arlington. Refreshments will be served, as we enjoy a powerful theatrical presentation
by Flor Candela.
