The human rights framework is the core of TRACK’s philosophy and our compass for activism. When we understand human rights, what needs to be done is very clear.
We’d like to invite all who are interested in UN human rights conventions to study with us on the second Sunday of each month at KoRoot. (There is a mistake on the linked map: it is near Gyeongbokgung Station on the orange line – not “Gyrongbokgung” / 경복궁역 3호선). The language is English. Our first official session will be January 13, 2013 at 11:00 a.m. We will also use some time to brainstorm for the 3rd Annual Single Moms’ Day, to be held May 11, 2013. After our session in English, we will join the Mindeullae group of adoptees’ families of origin for bilingual Korean-English conversation over lunch.
To prepare for discussion, please print these documents and bring them with you:
- Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women
- Convention on the Rights of the Child
- 2012 Universal Periodic Review Joint_Submission
Other information of interest that you may wish to read on your own can be found on TRACK’s online library.
Please reply to Jane Trenka at firstname.lastname@example.org if you can attend! Studying together is free; please bring money for a modest lunch at a local restaurant (nothing fancy, just normal Korean food). Hope to see you there!
