The public is invited to the Family Justice Center Monday to commemorate the 69th Anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights with a celebration of local human rights organizations and leaders.
There will be a reception from 6-7 p.m. featuring exhibitions from human rights organizations and art exhibitions from SPLASH and Flying Brushes. There will also be music by Rick Rushing III.
The program from 7-8 p.m. will include performances by Christian J. Collier and Rick Rushing III (Healing Blues). There will also be a panel moderated by WTVC NewsChannel 9's Greg Funderburg with speakers Marina Peshterianu (BRIDGE), Kristen McCallie (Children's Advocacy Center), Kate Sheets (SEIU) and Rev. Cathy Harrington (UUCC).
This is a free event, but seating is limited at the Center, so is a ticketed event.
