Human Rights: Teaching Tolerance and Peace

Well knowing Mr. Hubbard's strong admonition to national governments to uphold the fundamental human rights and abide by and implement the 30 articles of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, Mr. Miscavige inspired the initiation of the Church of Scientology human rights campaign.

Central to Scientology beliefs is a conviction that all humankind is entitled to inalienable rights. So it is that for more than 50 years Scientologists have championed the principles of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

Today, the Church of Scientology sponsors the largest non-governmental information campaign to make the Universal Declaration of Human Rights known the world over.

The Church’s human rights initiative sponsors groups and activities and provides its materials to individuals, groups and government agencies in 93 nations. This includes:

  • What Are Human Rights? booklets and Public Service Announcements that educate youth and adults on the 30 articles of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights in terms anyone can understand.
  • A study guide, activities manual and educator’s classroom kit that give teachers, human rights groups and governments effective tools to educate youth and adults on their human rights.
  • An accompanying documentary video, The Story of Human Rights, that complements the Public Service Announcements, booklets and educator materials as a further tool to bring about a universal awareness and respect for human rights.
