Speak Up! for Human Rights

The 11th grade students of Sapporo Sacred Heart School, Hokkaido, Japan, wrote a letter to their Sister Sacred Heart Schools throughout the world. They decided that the Bicentennial of St. Philippine Duchesne’s crossing to new frontiers was a good occasion to invite the Sacred Heart family worldwide to carry out a new action together.

The action gathers voices for human rights from around the world in many languages. During this 70th anniversary year of the United Nations Declaration of Human Rights, the UN is holding a campaign to celebrate human rights. The students of Sapporo, Japan, took up the challenge, and thought it would be great to ask others to also add their voices.
