Say YES (Youth Empowered Solutions) to Human Rights

December 11, 2020 at 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm EST

Join young leaders who will gather and engage in stimulating exchanges on how we can grow and be better supporters of Universal Human Rights.

To be young in 2020 is powerful because we are witnesses to the drastic changes that can happen in a short amount of time – good and bad. We have learned that our actions and inactions have an immense impact which is augmented when we unite with others.

In this context, it is a call to our world’s youth, who can often feel small as they battle to find their voice amidst issues that seem larger than life. Rumi Forum is dedicated to listening to these rising voices, which is why we are planning a virtual event for International Human Rights Day on December 11th, 2020.
