22nd Annual #SalemOR Speaks Up!

22nd Annual  Salem Speaks Up!

Commemoration of the 66th Anniversary of the UN Declaration of Human Rights

Wednesday, December 10, 2014

7:00 p.m.

(Doors open at 6:30)

 First United Methodist Church, 600 State St. NE

The opening theme for the evening will be homelessness in the Salem area – where the average age of a person without housing is 9 years.  Following the panel presentation and discussion, we will move to the open microphone, where community members are encouraged to SPEAK UP! about local human rights issues including but not limited to racism, classism, ageism, etc.

The event is intended to empower those who may be shy about speaking, and to inform, challenge and inspire community leaders, government officials, educators, businesses and ordinary citizens to follow up.

Each person who speaks is encouraged to described their own experiences and concerns and suggest possible support systems or changes they would like to see.
