The Human Rights Global Congress™ launch was such a great success. It took place in Grand Rapids, Michigan this spring, 2015. As Statesmen for iChange Nations™ - Human Rights Global Congress™, we are learning that while many people know something about Human Rights, they don’t know to what extent these rights exist and that they apply to all human beings.
It is time to bring the Human Rights back into the forefront and get leaders to be a voice for those who are unaware of their rights. I believe that as we bring awareness to those who are passionate about the rights of those who are being discriminated against, they will be willing to stand up and have a voice. No one is going to listen to a homeless person about their Human Rights but according to Article 25 of the Universal Declarations of Human Rights, “Everyone has the right to a standard of living adequate for the health and well-being of himself or his family, including food, clothing, housing and medical care and necessary social services, and the right to security in the event of unemployment, sickness, disability, widowhood, old age or other lack of livelihood in circumstances beyond his control.” Every person is entitled to these fundamental rights, simply because they are human.

The Human Rights Declaration is a global term but many people can’t define it. We need to know the Human Rights ourselves. We need to share them with others and our own children, family and friends. We need to be a voice, leaders that are willing to stand up; stand in the gap for those not experiencing their Human Rights. When Human Rights are not known well by the people, more abuse such as discrimination, intolerance, oppression and slavery can arise.
It is going to take leaders who are knowledgeable about the Human Rights. I believe that The Human Rights Global Congress™ is going to do just this, raise up, equip, train and launch just such leaders. They will go wherever needed to bring awareness and justice to those whose Human Rights are being violated. They will educate and bring hope.
