As a non-profit organization founded on the principles of universal brotherhood, cooperation, mutual respect, compassion, and respect for basic human rights and religious freedom across the globe, the ICHRRF is fully committed to promoting human rights and fundamental freedoms universally as the critical values connecting Humanity.
The preamble to the Universal Declaration of Human Rights states that "disregard and contempt for human rights have resulted in barbarous acts which have outraged the conscience of humankind, and the advent of a world in which human beings shall enjoy freedom of speech and belief and freedom from fear and want has been proclaimed as the highest aspiration of the common people." Moreover, article 1 of the Declaration states that "all human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights and are endowed with reason and conscience and should act towards one another in a spirit of brotherhood."
Becoming self-aware is often the first step in raising human consciousness. When we become more self-aware of what’s going on inside of us, we can increase awareness of whether we react or respond to the world around us. We also may develop insight into how others interact with us. With insight comes responsibility to lead authentically by example as servant-style leaders to be the change we want to see happen in the world. From here, we can practice treating ourselves and others with dignity, kindness and respect for basic human rights and religious freedom. These small changes can be incorporated by individuals each day to foster a compassionate culture that creates safe spaces for ourselves, our families and our communities in ways that allow for every one of us to honor our own cultural traditions and religious and spiritual practices.
Therefore, the ICHRRF is pleased to recognize and observe the International Day of Conscience on 5th April along with billions of other human beings reflecting our core values!
