Baha’i community observes Human Rights Day


The Rockford Baha’i 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 Baha’i Children’s Workshop and the Baha’i 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 Baha’i Spiritual Assembly; Judy Moe, who will share information about the International Children’s Club; and Kathryn Brown, who will unveil a proposal for a future United Nations Association in Rockford.

This program, sponsored by the Baha’is of Rockford, is designed to continue to unite and value each member of our diverse community.
