Say YES (Youth Empowerment Solutions) to Human Rights

December 11, 2020 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Young leaders! Let’s get together and engage in stimulating conversations on how we can uphold, cherish, and be better supporters of universal human rights! Join us as we Reorganize, Identify, Sustain, and Empower  (RISE) our perspectives on the International Day of Human Rights. 

To be young in 2020 is powerful because we are witnesses to the drastic changes that can happen in a short amount of time – good and bad. We have learned that our actions and inactions have an immense impact which is augmented when we unite with others.

In this context, it is a call to our world’s youth, who can often feel small as they battle to find their voice amidst issues that seem larger than life. Rumi Forum is dedicated to listening to these rising voices, which is why we are planning a virtual event for International Human Rights Day on December 11th, 2020.

Check out our bi-weekly blogs, which will serve as one of our mediums for sparking discussions around various topics of human rights and disseminating updates for the main event.
