Church of Scientology Spreads Human Rights Message in Denmark

February 5, 2009

LOS ANGELES (RushPRNews) 02/05/09-- The Church of Scientology of Copenhagen teamed up with the national chapter of Youth for Human Rights International, the Network against Racism and Artists for Peace, with an event last month marking the culmination of a nation-wide contest for youth called the "Human Rights Through Art Project."Denmark is a country known throughout the world for its commitment to human rights and religious tolerance. In commemoration of the 60th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the "Human Rights through Art Project" was established to increase awareness of human rights and raise the bar on tolerance.

The event was held at the Art Hall of Copenhagen. Finalists included three fine arts projects, two musical/singing performances and a dance creation.

The Universal Declaration of Human Rights was adopted and proclaimed on December 10, 1948, by the General Assembly of the United Nations. Following this historic act the Assembly called upon all member countries to publicize the Declaration and "to cause it to be disseminated, displayed, read and expounded principally in schools and other educational institutions, without distinction based on the political status of countries or territories." 7 Day FREE Trial

Youth for Human Rights International (YHRI) is a non-profit organization headquartered in Los Angeles, USA, with chapters around the world. Its purpose is to educate youth about human rights so they become valuable advocates of tolerance and peace. YHRI not only works hands-on with youth, but also with parents, teachers and mentors.

The Church of Scientology International (, which has a 50-year track record in the defense of human rights, provides sponsorship to YHRI and produces the human rights tools that YHRI broadly distributes. These audio-visual and published materials are produced in 18 languages and are currently in use in more than 450 countries.
