CLEARWATER, FL: An internet news search under “humanitarian crisis” nets more than four and a half million hits. Thousands of minutes of TV news and thousands of column inches of print media are dedicated to war, famine and violence. But what is at the base of these crises? And what can an individual do about it? These questions are addressed at weekly seminars held at the United for Human Rights Center, located at 29 N. Fort Harrison Ave. in Clearwater, is hosting a series of free weekly seminars. The seminars are held each Wednesday at 7:30pm.

The program is based on the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

“The United Nations put together a list of the basic, fundamental human rights that all people should expect to have,” said Cristian Vargas, the Executive Director of United for Human Rights Florida. “These rights include the right to life, the right to food and shelter, the right to an education and the right to live without torture. When people don’t know their rights and, just as importantly, don’t know that others have those exact same rights, abuses occur.”

United for Human Rights’ Florida Chapter utilizes the Universal Declaration as part of its educational programs and consistently works with some 60 civil and human rights groups to raise awareness of modern-day slavery. Over the past year, United for Human Rights has helped educate more than 50,000 people on their human rights in the Clearwater and Tampa areas.

United for Human Rights and its programs are based on principles expressed by Scientology Founder L. Ron Hubbard, who in 1969 observed, "Human rights must be made a fact, not an idealistic dream."

The Church of Scientology sponsors this human rights education and public information campaign.

For more information about the seminars, or to book a seminar for your group, please call 727-467-6960.

Human Resources or Human Capital?
Are people really an organisation's most important asset? Not necessarily. Some are liabilities – but some undoubtedly are the most important drivers of value that an organisation has.

This book explains the answers and discusses approaches
