Human Rights Campaign (HRC), an independent non-political and non-profit group under the auspices of Youth Parliament of Jammu & Kashmir (YPJK), got a chapter authorisation from the US based human rights education group, Youth for Human Rights International (YHRI). The chapter authorisation allows the YPJK to carry out various projects of YHRI in Jammu & Kashmir, collect financial donations, official membership fees and other benefits representing YHRI.
Youth for Human Rights International (YHRI) is a non-profit organization based in Los Angeles, California, USA and is operating worldwide for the purpose of providing easy-to-understand human rights education to adults and children as aligned with the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights and to effectively combat violations of human rights.
Interacting with the members of HRC while inaugurating the YHRI Chapter in J&K, Executive Director Youth Parliament of Jammu & Kashmir, Advocate Nadeem Qadri said that we need to create a mass awareness about human rights among the people. “When a person is fully aware of his rights, only then he can understand their violations”, he said.
During the occasion, new members of HRC were also announced. They include Owais Khan, Feroz, Farhat, Faisal, Saqib, Aqib. The members of HRC decided to hold awareness programs about the human rights among the school and college students initially. The newly inaugurated chapter of YHRI in J&K promised to promote human rights education among the people.
The Human Rights Campaign of YPJK aims to make the people aware about their rights. HRC serves as a mobile centre for teaching and spreading awareness about the Human Rights among the people especially youth. The members of HRC work at different levels in the universities, colleges, schools, etc. for the sake of creating awareness about the human rights. HRC believes that “If today’s youth is aware of his rights, we can have a beautiful tomorrow".
