In honor of International Human Rights Day, WLP will screen Human Rights: The Unfinished Journey, our new documentary on the marginalization of human rights across the world, at Busboys and Poets (Takoma), Washington, DC.
About the film:
In the last two decades, emphasis on military-centered security has given rise to unprecedented challenges for human rights defenders. The push for “hard security” has increasingly taken priority over human rights protections at all levels of governance and policy making. This approach has failed to promote peace or guarantee individual safety or national security.
Human Rights: The Unfinished Journey chronicles the history of the human rights movement and explores the need for a holistic understanding of universal human rights. It presents a compelling case on why human rights should be placed at the center of national and international policy making.
