ATD (All Together in Dignity) Ireland is organising a number of different events to mark Human Rights Day 2015, which falls on 10th December.
In the lead-up to Human Rights Day, ATD will welcome two special international guests to Ireland, who will be involved in the organisation’s events between 7th and 9th December: : Janet Nelson – who, after many positions within UNICEF, recently became Vice-President of ATD International; and Bruno Tardieu, a member of ATD International Volunteer Corps, who has worked in the USA and France, and is the author of a new book about ATD.
To kickstart ATD Ireland’s programme of events for Human Rights Day 2015, there will be a special informal meeting between Janet Nelson and Bruno Tardieu on Monday, 7th December 2015, at 5pm at ATD’s office, 26 Mountjoy Square East, Dublin 1.
This will be followed by a bilingual (French / English) event the following day, Tuesday, 8th December. Bruno Tardieu will present his new book about ATD, ‘Quand Un Peuple Parle’ (‘When A People Speak’) at the Alliance Française, Kildare Street, Dublin 2 at 6.30pm on Tuesday.
As part of its programme of activities for Human Rights Day 2015, ATD is also organising an evening-time walk and an event at which Emily Logan, Chief Commissioner of the Irish Human Rights and Equality Commission, will deliver a guest address. We will be posting information about these events over the coming days, so check back soon for further updates!
