Nashville Church of Scientology Announces Day of Peace Event

The Nashville Church of Scientology announced today that it plans to have a second annual event for International Day of Peace.

The Nashville Church of Scientology hosted an International Day of Peace Open House and Forum September 21, a day set aside by the United Nations for “strengthening the ideals of peace, both within and among all nations and peoples.”

Rev. Brian Fesler, senior pastor of the Nashville Church, welcomed everyone, “Thank you all for coming--just by your presence at this event, you are showing a deep commitment to human rights and peace.”

The theme of this year’s International Day of Peace is “Partnerships for Peace—Dignity for All,” and the Church was honored to host a forum on human trafficking in partnership with community, civic and religious leaders.

The forum was titled “Exposing the Hidden World of Human Trafficking” and brought together a panel of local and international human rights advocates who fight this problem on a daily basis.

Panel members included Clemmie Greenlee, Founder of the Nashville Peacemakers who spoke to the many victims of human trafficking; Melody Fowler-Green, Director of the Metro Human Relations Commission who spoke to slave labor in the 21st century; Assistant District Attorney Tammy Meade spoke to the work of the DA’s office; Allasone Lita G., CEO and Founder of All Is One spoke about hope for a new generation; and Gabrielle Thompson, Executive Director of Free for Life International spoke about how to restore lives across the globe.

Rev. Fesler presented an overview of the Church-supported United for Human Rights initiative. He played the public service announcement for Universal Declaration of Human Rights article 4, “No Slavery,” and article 1, “We are all born free and equal,” and described the United for Human Rights and Youth for Human Rights education curricula and the results Church volunteers have achieved through making these materials broadly available. “Working together, we can make a difference,” said Fesler.

Scientologists on five continents engage in collaborative efforts with government agencies and nongovernmental organizations to bring about broad-scale awareness and implementation of the 1948 United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the world’s premier human rights document.
