Human Rights Month


All human beings were born into the same world we were and that, despite our differences, we must learn to function here together. Human Rights Month is about acknowledging that people of different races, religions, cultures, and beliefs are still just that: people. Valuing diversity simply means that we are comfortable with who we are as individuals and are able to accept and appreciate the differences of ourselves and of others. Through valuing diversity, we learn to expect, respect and accept differences from others.
