Homeless Have Rights Too – Human Rights Seminar on How to Help Homelessness

Mr. Christopher King, founder of the Gentleman's Course and human rights advocate, speaks on Human Rights in Tampa Bay.

Violations of human rights aren’t only occurring in other countries. They occur in our very own back yards, in our schools, in our neighborhoods, and they occur on a daily basis,”
— Cristian Vargas, Executive Director UHR Florida

CLEARWATER, FLORIDA, US, February 21, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ -- The United for Human Rights (UHR) Florida Center, located at 29 N Fort Harrison Avenue in Downtown Clearwater, is inviting the public to learn how to combat human rights abuses with a seminar on March 2nd at 1:30pm. It will focus on the local problems of homelessness and how anyone can be a part of the solution.

This seminar is one in a series of seminars held by the UHR Center to educate the community on how to solve situations ruining their areas. One of the situations UHR wants to tackle is homelessness. In Pinellas County there are nearly 12,000 homeless, and over 1,200 of those are children. Homelessness is just one human rights problem that Florida encounters every day. The Universal Declaration of Human Rights says in Human Right #25 that everyone has the right to food and shelter.

“Violations of human rights aren’t only occurring in other countries. They occur in our very own back yards, in our schools, in our neighborhoods, and they occur on a daily basis,” said Cristian Vargas, Executive Director for United for Human Rights Florida. “If you aren’t educated on what to look for, and what to do when you come across it, you are defenseless and vulnerable.”

The UHR Center opened its doors in July of 2015 when the Church of Scientology sponsored its brand new center in the heart of Downtown Clearwater. The Center hosts a variety of seminars, discussions and events to raise awareness on what human rights are and how to secure them. The center is open every day from 10am to 10pm.

United for Human Rights:

Their purpose was inspired by the words of Humanitarian and Scientology Founder, L. Ron Hubbard, who wrote, “Human Rights must be made a fact, not an idealistic dream.”
