Church of Scientology Making a Difference for Human Rights in Tennessee

Scientology Founder L. Ron Hubbard wrote, “Human rights must be made a fact, not an idealistic dream.”

“Scientology: How We Help—United for Human Rights, Making Human Rights a Global Reality,” details how communities are using the Church of Scientology’s United for Human Rights program to fight abuses in this field.

The Nashville Church of Scientology Pastor, Rev. Brian Fesler, who this year chaired the Tennessee Human Rights Day celebration, says, “Education is the first step toward anything. People have to know their rights and know that ‘human rights’ as a topic even exists before they can do anything effective about it.”

A newly released brochure, Scientology: How We Help—United for Human Rights, Making Human Rights a Global Reality, details work done with the human rights initiative with politicians, governments, community activists, schools and religious groups across the world.

On December 10, Tennessee held its annual Human Rights Day celebration at Nashville’s North Police Precinct. The Executive Director of the Tennessee Human Rights Commission, Beverly Watts, was Master of Ceremonies for the day. The celebration centered around the human rights advocate award, which is given each year to lifelong leaders. This year the award went to Rev. Bill Barnes, Rosetta Miller-Perry and Attorney George Barrett.

A Rising Advocate award is given to individuals who have recently taken up the human rights cause, and this year the award went to Daoud Abudiab with the Islamic Center of Columbia and Cecilia Gomez with Free for Life International and Conexion Americas.

Planners for the event included the Tennessee Human Rights Commission, Metro Nashville Human Relations Commission, United Nations Association Nashville Cordell Hull Chapter and others. Awardees were nominated and selected by consensus. Rev. Fesler said, “Not only do you have to educate people about their rights, but you have to celebrate and honor those who are in the fight. The more people who join in to work for human rights for all, the closer we get to human rights being a reality for everyone.”
