Every year on December 10th, people across all nations, from all different backgrounds, religions, creeds, and orientations, come together to celebrate, commemorate, and remember the day the United Nations General Assembly implemented the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Originally ratified on December 10th, 1948, the UDHR is the most translated document in the world. It is the first official landmark of its time documenting the inalienable rights which everyone is inherently entitled to as a human being “regardless of race, color, religion, sex, language, political opinion, national or social origin, property, birth or another status.
We at EthicsInTech.com believe that every human being is entitled to the inalienable rights described by our founding forefathers and that every human being has a voice – and a choice to stand up and speak up for what they believe in. We understand that our world does not receive redemption nor judgment for the acts of only a few people. It takes the heart, soul, and action of every individual to build and form a nation. It is only after we educate and boost the well-being of all countries that we will be able to come together to form a better world.
At EthicsinTech.com, we believe that technology has the power to do amazing things. Technology gives us more power to do, act, and promote social justice and change. We believe that with this immense power of Big Tech comes immense responsibility – to use this new instrument ethically, humanely, and responsibly to improve the lives of ALL human beings versus just an elite few.
One of the most severe, widespread human rights violations that still exist today is digital censorship, digital rights, women’s rights, and the right of the disabled. Whether we are reviewing cases of imprisonment, violence, or social inequity in the workplace, multiple studies have shown us that our society still has a long way to go to support, raise awareness and promote digital rights, women’s rights, and human rights.
On December 10th, EthicsInTech.com will host a special event to present the inhumanity faced by digital rights and civil liberty activists from around the world. We will host a panel of speakers, activists, and technology leaders to hear their journeys, perspectives, and wisdom on how to do better to promote equal digital rights with dignity and respect for all.
Join The Church for the Fellowship of All People and NoEthicsInBigTech.com for an evening of activism and education to inspire social change.
Hiroshima, a city in Japan, was the site of a devastating nuclear attack on August 6th, 1945. The anniversary of this event is a time to reflect on the horror of nuclear war and the need for peace. Hiroshima also reminds us of the power of Military and Technology and in its role in creating and sustaining peace. Big Tech companies have the resources and the platform to make a real difference in the world. At this event, we will encourage them to act with Ethics. Join us as we learn from Hiroshima’s example and work towards a more peaceful future.
Please Join us on August 6th, 2020 for the anniversary of Hiroshima Day
Time: from 6:30 PM PDT to 9:00 PM PDT Tickets on EventBrite
