Service at York Minster to Celebrate Human Rights

Members of our group outside York Minster: A still from our 2015 music video

The Universal Declaration of Human Rights is a declaration by the United Nations General Assembly. It talks about human rights - rights that all people have just because they are human. The United Nations General Assembly agreed to it on 10 December 1948.

The UDHR (Universal Declaration of Human Rights) has 30 parts. Here are a few of the most important ideas:
  • Everyone has the right to a nationality
  • Everyone has the right to education
  • Everyone has the right to work
  • Everyone has the right to vote
  • No-one shall be tortured or treated in a cruel or unkind way
  • Everyone has the right to choose their religion

On Tuesday 11 December 2018 the regular choral evensong service at York Minster will celebrate campaigning work for human rights - to mark the 70th anniversary of the UDHR.

Our group stands up for human rights. So does York Human Rights City. We and they will participate in the service.

Everyone is welcome to attend the service. It starts at 5.15 pm. Admission is free of charge. Before or after the service, you will have the opportunity to meet us and find out what we do.

November Monthly Meeting

Our next monthly meeting takes place on Tuesday 13 November at the usual venue - York Friends Meeting House, Friargate, York YO1 9RL. We do not have a guest speaker so the meeting starts at 7.30 pm. Everyone is, as always, welcome to attend.
