WASHINGTON, DC, USA, December 31, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Iranian regime foreign minister, Javad Zarif, is scheduled to attend a meeting on multilateralism in New York on January 9, 2020. This trip comes at a time where the regime is utterly rejected by the people of Iran in nationwide protests across 191 cities and towns since November 15, 2019. The disgraced Zarif represents a brutal regime responsible for killing more than 1,500 people in recent weeks. More than 12,000 people have been arrested but the protests continue even during the memorial services across Iran. Chanting “down with the dictator,” the people of Iran denounce the regime’s supreme leader, Ali Khamenei, and its president, Hassan Rouhani.
Blacklisted by the US State Department, Zarif personifies a terrorist regime whose crimes against humanity is seen in the 1988 massacre of 30,000 political prisoners. He represents a regime with the highest record of terrorist activities and proxy wars around the world. With such abhorring record of violence and terror, his visit is an affront to the entire framework of the United Nations.
The U.S. State Department must deny visa to Javad Zarif. This would be a strong message to the people of Iran, especially those who lost their loved ones during the recent protests, as well as a clear message to the Iranian regime that the world no longer tolerates its killings inside Iran and terrorism abroad.
Zarif and his regime do not represent the people of Iran. Iran’s UN seat belongs to the people of Iran who stand for humanity, peace, justice and freedom.

Youth for Human Rights will conduct training for social workers, teachers, advocates and citizens in Washington, DC, for Human Trafficking Awareness Month.

Putting an end to human trafficking starts with acknowledging its existence and gaining the skills to properly recognize and report it.”

— Erica Rodgers, Director of Youth for Human Rights National Office

WASHINGTON, DC, USA, December 30, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Would you know how to accurately spot a victim of human or sex trafficking? Do you feel confident in your ability to report it to the correct authorities while maintaining your own safety? Youth for Human Rights International will be conducting training in spotting and preventing human trafficking on Wednesday, January 29, 2020, to teach attendees the skills necessary to help save lives from this criminal enterprise.

During the month of January, advocates, organizations and individuals unite to raise awareness about the issue of human trafficking. The International Labor Organization estimates that there are 40.3 million victims of human trafficking globally, with hundreds of thousands in the United States. According to the Department of Homeland Security, human trafficking is “modern-day slavery and involves the use of force, fraud, or coercion to obtain some type of labor or commercial sex act.” The victims of this crime in the U.S. are men and women, adults and children, foreign nationals and U.S. citizens. Victims are of all genders, ages, races, countries and socioeconomic statuses.

“The horrors of human trafficking remain largely hidden but are often very prevalent in our communities,” said Erica Rodgers, Director for Youth for Human Rights International’s US National Office in Washington, DC. “Putting an end to human trafficking starts with acknowledging its existence and gaining the skills to properly recognize and report it.”

As human trafficking is an issue that touches every community, including cities, suburbs and rural towns, Youth for Human Rights International’s National Office is launching an initiative to help prevent it in local communities through human trafficking training.

At the training attendees will learn:

• What human trafficking is and how it classifies as modern-day slavery and a human rights abuse.

• How to recognize potential red flags and know the indicators of human trafficking.

• How to safely report victims, helping them find the assistance they need while keeping yourself safe.

The training will take place from 2-4 pm on Wednesday, January 29, 2020, at the Church of Scientology National Affairs Office in the Fraser Mansion, 1701 20th Street NW, Washington, DC, 20009. Those interested in attending can do so by going to: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/human-trafficking-training-tickets-87722880497.

Furthermore Youth for Human Rights International has been working to prevent human trafficking on a national and international level for over a decade. Raising awareness of human rights is the necessary undercut to this and so many other human rights issues. Article four of the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights states: “No one shall be held in slavery or servitude; slavery and the slave trade shall be prohibited in all their forms.”

To read all of the human rights as listed in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights go to: http://www.un.org/en/universal-declaration-human-rights/ or for descriptive videos of each of the 30 human rights go to https://www.youthforhumanrights.org.
