Human Rights Day Celebration 2010
Join The Pittsburgh Human Rights Coalition, Amizade Global Service-Learning, and other local organizations for the Human Rights Day Celebration!
In honor of Human Rights Day, the Pittsburgh Human Rights Network will be hosting a night of social awareness, live music and drinks in order to celebrate the progress of human rights in the world, rather than mourning the abuses and negative aspects that are all too often focused upon. This evening will also highlight the important work that local community organizations are doing to educate the Pittsburgh community and promote human rights around the world.
This evening will provide a great opportunity for anyone interested in getting involved with human rights in Pittsburgh or to network with local organizations. We are lucky enough to be able to host this event at the Shadow Lounge will include Joy Ike, TimbaVida, and Global Beats providing live entertainment throughout the evening. There will also be items to raffle off from various local favorites, including Conflict Kitchen, Commonwealth Press, Remedy Restaurant and Lounge, Union Grill, Sphinx Cafe Hookah Bar, Lezzet Restaurant & more!
This event is FREE admission, but donations are always welcome!
The Shadow Lounge is 18+ for admission, 21+ to drink.
Friday, December 10th, 5:30pm-8:00pm
