Tennessee United for Human Rights spreads its message through educational tools, hard-hitting videos, and inspirational messages.

Church of Scientology Nashville in partnership with Tennessee United for Human
Rights held an event to observe International Day of Tolerance.  It was an educational forum on what the
International Day of Tolerance means, and how to promote human rights to help
bring about understanding among all peoples.  International
Day of Tolerance began on the fiftieth anniversary of UNESCO's Member States when
they adopted a Declaration of Principles on Tolerance, 16 November 1995. Among
other things, the Declaration affirms that tolerance is respect and
appreciation of the rich variety of our world's cultures, our forms of
expression and ways of being human. “Tolerance recognizes the universal human
rights and fundamental freedoms of others,” according to “People are
naturally diverse; only tolerance can ensure the survival of mixed communities
in every region of the globe.” Tennessee
United for Human Rights (TUHR) promotes human rights education as a way to
combat ignorance and increase awareness. “Each year we focus on a human rights
issue that needs to be brought to light,” says Rev. Brian Fesler, regional
coordinator of the Tennessee United for Human Rights program.  Tennessee United for Human Rights is the local chapter of United
for Human Rights, an international, not-for-profit organization dedicated to
implementing the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Its membership is
comprised of individuals and groups throughout the world who are actively
forwarding the knowledge and protection of human rights by and for all Mankind,
according to Its purpose is to provide human rights
educational resources and activities that inform, assist and unite youth, educators,
organizations and governmental bodies in the dissemination and adoption of the
Universal Declaration of Human Rights at every level of society. For more information about United for Human Rights, go to,
