Human rights are our most basic need.
Yet in every village, city, and nation across the globe
Countless numbers of people
Are denied their human rights.
How can we stand by and let this happen?
We need to declare rights for all men and women
Speak out for children
Encourage the freedom of religion
Advocate for the refugees and migrants
Lift up those in poverty
Erupt in support for LGBTQ
Stand in solidarity with people of every race
Elevate the need for quality education everywhere
Raise up the rights of the disabled
Promote justice for all.
It’s our responsibility to preserve and protect
Human rights for everyone.Mindy Vande Brake, YAV with the Presbyterian Ministry at the UN

Let us pray
Dear Lord, we pray that you may give us the strength and the courage to stand up for others rights, in a desire that our voices may sing together in a harmony for justice. Remind us constantly of those suffering without their rights that we may be in solidarity with them. God, I pray to give us hope as we aspire to do your will and uplift every human being near and far. In this we pray. Amen.
