To mark the anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, you are kindly invited to the launch of the first annual York Human Rights Indicator Report, in the Huntingdon Room of King's Manor at 5pm on Thursday December 8th, 2016. Tea and coffee with fruit and mincepies will be available from 4:30 pm.
Human Rights matter in York. In 2015, York residents and organisations identified their priorities to be the right to education, a decent standard of living, housing, health and social care, and equality and non-discrimination.
The York Human Rights City Network has developed what will be an annual report that monitors progress on the protection and fulfilment of York's priority rights using indicators from York specific data. Our aim is to start a different kind of conversation about human rights, a positive one: ensuring that human rights relate to everyday concerns, close to home, and are more locally informed. We believe that in York human rights provide protection and a means of problem solving for all.
Building on York's history of democracy, social justice and philanthropy, this launch will serve as a platform to bring together individuals and organisations from across York as a means to start talking about rights and what we can all do to make York a vibrant, diverse, fair, safe and international city.
Join us for a discussion about how the Indicator Report can be of use to you and your work.
What are my transport/parking options getting to the event?
The Kings Manor is situated in Exhibition Square, next to the City Art Gallery and the Theatre Royal, a few minutes walk from the centre of York.
Buses 1,2 and 3 go from the railway station to Exhibition Square. Alternately, it takes about 10 minutes to walk.
By car, the easiest approach to The Kings Manor is to take the A19 turn off from the A1237 section of the outer ring road, which goes directly to the centre of the City. There are pay and display car parks on Marygate and Bootham Bar.
Roofed cycle storage is available to the rear of the main car park.
Where can I contact the organiser with any questions?
