"As societies build walls of separation between communities,
ICAAD works to remove each brick to illuminate our common humanity"

Tony Blair Faith Foundation Presentation: Human Rights Concerns in the U.S.

Face to Faith hosted ICAAD’s Director of Legal Programs, Hansdeep Singh, on Human Rights Day (12/10/12) in a question and answer session with students.

The discussion covered topics such as: nuclear disarmament, manifesting one’s religious identity, discrimination in the context of hate crimes, women’s rights (specifically violence against women), lack of State accountability mechanisms in the UN, and what impact does the signing of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) 64 years ago have on today’s global human rights issues.

Face to Faith, a project of the Tony Blair Faith Foundation, brings students of different religions and cultures together using digital technology to connect schools in 19 countries.

ICAAD has designed its model and mission to identify and combat discrimination using an innovative interdisciplinary approach that empowers NGOs and the vulnerable populations they serve, through advocacy, education, and litigation.
