CLEARWATER, Fla. - May 9, 2024 - PRLog -- Seeing the importance of human rights education, the United for Human Rights (UHR) of Florida is hosting on-demand screenings of the award-winning film The Story of Human Rights. The film is being screened at UHR's center in downtown Clearwater, located at 29 N. Fort Harrison Ave. The film covers the evolution of the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights and why this 1948 document is relevant today.

"Over the past few years, FBI Tampa charged 27 people for threatening hate crimes," said Ella Rouelle, the Executive Director for UHR Florida. "Per the National Center for Education Statistics, 1 in 5 US students between the ages of 12 and 18 have been bullied. Neither scenario shows an environment safe from human rights abuses. When people don't know what their rights are, or don't understand why they have rights in the first place, their rights can be abused – which is where The Story of Human Rights documentary comes in."

The Story of Human Rights documentary defines what human rights are and outlines the events that led up to the creation and signing of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights at the United Nations.

"The documentary is a key element of the United for Human Rights global education program," said Rouelle.

The documentary is available to view on demand in the UHR Center Monday through Friday from 10:00am to 1:00pm and 2:00pm to 7:00pm and on Saturday and Sunday from 2:00pm to 7:00pm. No appointment is required. For more information, call the center at 727–467–6960 or go to
