Church of Scientology Releases New Brochure to Spearhead Human Rights Awareness and Reform

New brochure extends the help of Scientology Churches globally in the name of the UN Universal Declaration of Human Rights


In commemoration of UN Human Rights Day December 10 and the 64th anniversary of the adoption of the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR), the Church of Scientology International has released a new brochure, Scientology How We Help: United for Human Rights—Making Human Rights a Global Reality.

This publication is one of a series of publications presented by the Church of Scientology International to meet requests for more information about the Scientology religion and its support of global humanitarian initiatives and social betterment programs.

These programs are in growing demand among individuals, organizations and agencies seeking workable tools to address such issues as substance abuse, illiteracy, crime and immorality, the erosion of human rights and the human tragedies that follow natural and man-made disasters.

Early in his research into the human mind and spirit, author, humanitarian and Scientology Founder L. Ron Hubbard emphasized that spiritual freedom and enlightenment were all but unattainable goals to individuals denied their most fundamental human rights.

Accordingly, he wrote the Code of a Scientologist, calling on all members of the religion to dedicate themselves “to support true humanitarian endeavors in the fields of human rights.” In doing so, he laid the groundwork for what has become a global movement of advocates for the human rights of all people, regardless of their social condition, ethnicity or religious affiliation.

Today, Scientologists on five continents engage in collaborative efforts with government agencies and nongovernmental organizations to bring about broad-scale awareness and implementation of the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the world’s premier human rights document.

The Church and its members welcome the participation of all who seek to bring about global awareness of and respect for human rights toward the goal of a world where human rights are an everyday reality for all.

Scientology Founder L. Ron Hubbard wrote, “Human rights must be made a fact, not an idealistic dream.” The Church of Scientology supports United for Human Rights, one of the world's largest nongovernmental human rights education campaigns.
