Only two more days until the September 8th #StandUp4HumanRightsCT event in Hartford! The rally will serve as a space for networking, idea exchange, entertainment, and candid dialogue about the state of human rights in Connecticut communities. Come one, come all!

Today’s we celebrate the eighth article of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, which guarantees the right to justice. The article reads: “Everyone has the right to an effective remedy by the competent national tribunals for acts violating the fundamental rights granted him by the constitution or by law.” The right to justice is a sacrosanct component of both international human rights law and within the domestic justice system.

Do you feel that you have access to adequate platforms and resources to defend human rights in your community? What do you imagine that those might look like? If you feel that your community lacks them, what processes do you believe need to be undergone to create those opportunities? If you feel that your community has them, how do you think that you can strengthen and support those that don’t? Share your thoughts in the comments below!

Come to the #StandUp4HumanRightsCT rally on September 8th to learn more about how you and your community can affect change.
