By BBN Staff: December 10, is recognized globally as Human Rights Day, and the Human Rights Commission of Belize (HRCB) is marking the occasion by holding a virtual panel discussion tonight.
The discussion, which will feature HRCB President Leo Bradley, former Ombudsman Cynthia Pitts, Sharon Enriquez, and Tracey Robateau, will run from 7-8 pm and will be streamed on the commission’s Facebook page. (https://www.facebook.com/HRCBZ).
The discussion will focus on how human rights can be placed at the core of recovery efforts from both the COVID-19 pandemic and the recent floods in Belize. The HRCB will also be discussing how it can help to create equal opportunities for all, address failures of human rights standards in Belize, and how to address entrenched and intergenerational systemic inequalities, exclusion, and discrimination.
“We encourage you on this International HUMAN RIGHTS day to contribute to making your environment, your village, your town, your city a better place. Educate yourself and others about HUMAN RIGHTS, take action to reduce the violations of individual HUMAN RIGHTS; bring to the forefront the need for equal treatment and continue to fight to protect the HUMAN RIGHTS of all,” the HRCB said.
Human Rights Day is celebrated annually on December 10 in commemoration of the day the United Nations General Assembly adopted, in 1948, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR). The 2020 theme for Human Rights Day is ” Recover Better-Stand up for Human Rights.”
