Bahai community observes Human Rights Day
The Rockford Bahai community invites you to join them for a special observance of Human Rights Day, from 2 to 4 p.m., Sunday, December 10, at Patriots Gateway Center, Fifth Avenue and Fifth Street, in Rockford. This all-inclusive program features Bosnian children from Conklin School singing native songs, Laotian children from Kishwaukee School performing native dances in colorful costumes, plus the Bahai Childrens Workshop and the Bahai Choir singing international songs.
The featured speakers who will share perspectives on human rights include Mara Stafets, a former Soviet citizen and recent Teacher of the Year; Tim Moore, chairman of the Bahai Spiritual Assembly; Judy Moe, who will share information about the International Childrens Club; and Kathryn Brown, who will unveil a proposal for a future United Nations Association in Rockford.
This program, sponsored by the Bahais of Rockford, is designed to continue to unite and value each member of our diverse community.
