Speakers explore human rights history

COEUR d'ALENE - The history and impact of human rights advocacy in the region will be the subject of a five-part weekly speaker series hosted in August by the Kootenai County Democratic Club.

"The Story of Human Rights in the Pacific Northwest: A Look Back at the Past Three Decades" is being coordinated by local human rights leader Tony Stewart at the request of the Democratic Club.

"The goal of the series is to tell the three-decade story of how the region's many human rights groups through their leaders and supporters successfully defeated the purveyors of hate with the establishment of successful community models advancing human rights," Stewart said. "These models have been adopted by communities across America to promote human rights and counter bigotry." Full story, Cda Press
