Human Rights Day Display Table at the Farmers Market, 2010

Don’t miss Human Rights Day at the Moscow Farmers Market this Saturday, September 10, 2011  from 8:00am to 1:00pm in downtown Moscow, ID.

This year’s theme is Japanese Internment and Islamophobia: Drawing Parallels from History. Using displays, fact sheets, and children’s activities, members of the Latah County Human Rights Task Force will provide information about the Japanese American Internment Camp at Kooskia, Idaho and help viewers confront current growing biases against American Muslims.

About nwchr

The Northwest Coalition for Human Rights (NWCHR) exists to facilitate connections and communication among organizations and individuals who are engaged in human rights and social justice work in the Northwest region of the United States, with special focus on the Inland Northwest. The coalition, inspired by Bill Wassmuth's former Northwest Coalition Against Malicious Harassment, will give strength to those working at the local level by allowing them to share resources, information, and ideas, as well as making them part of a larger support system. The University of Idaho Office of Human Rights, Access, and Inclusion (HRAI) in Moscow serves as the administrative home for the NWCHR, and the Coalition strives to build strong membership from throughout Idaho and eastern Washington, as well as from other parts of the Northwest region. All are welcome to join NWCHR and give their input.
