The Church of Scientology hosted closing ceremonies March 23 for the 9th annual Youth for Human Rights International World Tour at the L. Ron Hubbard Auditorium of the Scientology Community Center at 8039 S. Vermont Avenue in South Los Angeles.

The ceremony capped the human rights group’s five-week 28,000-mile journey through seven nations. Youth for Human Rights representatives from Mexico, Liberia, and Japan presented highlights of the 2012 World Tour’s activities in their countries.

On behalf of Youth for Human Rights International, founder and president Dr. Mary Shuttleworth accepted proclamations and commendations from U.S. Senator Harry Reid of Nevada, U.S. Congresswoman Karen Bass of California, Inglewood Mayor James T. Butts and Los Angeles City Councilman Bernard Parks, acknowledging the accomplishments of the organization in human rights education.

Dr. Elizabeth McKinney, Chief Executive Officer of the Global Project Development Foundation, said, “Knowledge is power and human rights education empowers people to be the best that they can be, knowing that no law, no person or rule can deny them their right to dignity and peace.”

The 9th Annual Youth for Human Rights World Tour launched from Los Angeles and traveled to Mexico, Liberia, Togo, Cameroon, Ethiopia, Taiwan and Japan. In Taiwan, the tour met with President Ma Ying-jeou to introduce him to the program and materials. While in Mexico, they released “Artists United for Human Rights,” a booklet featuring 34 prominent Mexican performing artists promoting the 30 articles of the UN Universal Declaration of Human Rights. In Ethiopia, Youth for Human Rights International, in partnership with the Ethiopia Human Rights Commission, released a booklet covering the articles of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights in Amharic, the official language of Ethiopia and second most-spoken Semitic language in the world after Arabic. In each country they held conferences and meetings with other national and state officials and prominent nongovernment organizations to arrange implementation of Youth for Human Rights educational materials and curricula.

Other guest speakers at the closing ceremonies included Angela Madsen, six-time member and gold medalist of the U.S. National Paralympics Team; Dr. Howard M.

Scientology Volunteer Ministers of Inglewood March in Support of Martin Luther King Day of Service

22 03 2012

Scientology Volunteer Ministers were proud to participate in the 27th annual Kingdom Parade in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King

In honor of Martin Luther King Jr. and his legacy, Volunteer Ministers of the Church of Scientology of Inglewood marched on Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard in Los Angeles January 16, in observation of Martin Luther King Day of Service 2012.

Brass bands, cheerleaders, drill teams, gang intervention groups, law enforcement officers and government officials filled the street. And thousands of spectators waived and cheered along the 2.5-mile parade route, barely hearing friends greeting them with “Happy King Day” over the blare of air horns.

The 27th annual Kingdom Day Parade honored Dr. King, whose message of freedom and nonviolence inspires people of all faiths, backgrounds and ages.

In the spirit of the day—a day of service—at the end of the parade, the Inglewood Scientology Volunteer Ministers welcomed the community to an information booth where they introduced visitors to services available at the new Inglewood Church of Scientology and the Scientology Community Center in South L.A.: free tutoring, one-on-one help, and a wide selection of courses in practical life-skills—from improving job performance to conflict resolution, salvaging marriages and helping a friend or loved one overcome addiction.

The Church of Scientology of Inglewood, at 315 South Market Street, is open from 9:30 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. Monday through Friday and 9:30 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.
