A look at human rights across the world on Human Rights Day
The International The Universal Declaration of Human Rights

Hosts Celeste Carey and Cecil Prescod honor the International The Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the foundation of international human rights law. Adopted in 1948, the UDHR has inspired a rich body of legally binding international human rights treaties. 

Today is Human Rights Day, an annual celebration of human rights and a day of advocating for the full enjoyment of all human rights by everyone everywhere.

In 2012 the focus is the rights of all people — women, youth, minorities, persons with disabilities, indigenous people, the poor and marginalized — to make their voices heard in public life and be included in political decision-making.

"We Are the Majority and We Demand Justice"

Hosts Celeste Carey and Cecil Prescod speak with Colorlines publisher Rinku Sen about "We Are the Majority and We Demand Justice."

Rinku Sen spoke at the "Facing Race" conference in Baltimore on November 17th to discuss what happens next, after an election in which people of color were once again a deciding force. Sen says “This election proved to us that our alliances are gaining speed and strength.” What’s left, Rinku explained, is to marshal those alliances and fight for meaningful change.

Norman Solomon on "How to Build a Grassroots Power Base"

Hosts Celeste Carey and Cecil Prescod interview Norman Solomon about his article "How to Build a Grassroots Power Base," in The Nation magazine and about whether Democrats in Congress will push back against White House pressure for a ‘grand bargain.’ After providing much of the grassroots energy that kept Mitt Romney from winning the presidency, Solomon contends, progressive activists must now concentrate on a new task -- restraining the president’s tendency to give ground to GOP leaders on Capitol Hill.

Comments

Poll Watcher:"High Concetration of People of Color" Voting

If the act of voting -exercising a duty and privilege- evokes this response, we ought recognize that the vote is most valuable and must be protected.

My error

Hi, Cecil, I called in to your fine program this morning to give the announcement about Imam Mamadou Toure's presentation at the Quaker Meetinghouse. Apparently I gave the wrong date: the correct date is Friday, January 25. I would greatly appreciate it if you could give that date on next week's program, I'm sorry to have confused things.
Peace, Jim Metcalfe
