Harmonizing Religion and Human Rights (Dec. 5, 2018)

December brings the 70th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, a United Nations document that lays out an individual’s inalienable rights. To mark the occasion, a panel of religious leaders will explore what the scriptures of some of the world’s major religions have to say about human rights. How can we align religious life with human rights? What role should spiritual leaders play in promoting human rights? And what can everyday people of faith do to defend human rights and encourage mutual respect between people of different religions?

Moderator:
- Karin Ryan, Carter Center senior advisor on human rights and special representative on women and girls

Panelists:
- Former U.S. President Jimmy Carter
- Rabbi Jill Jacobs, executive director of T'ruah, the Rabbinic Call for Human Rights
- Imam Omar Suleiman, founder and president of the Yaqeen Institute for Islamic Research

Founded in 1982 by former U.S. President Jimmy Carter and former First Lady Rosalynn Carter in partnership with Emory University, The Carter Center is committed to advancing human rights and alleviating unnecessary human suffering. The Center wages peace, fights disease, and builds hope worldwide.
