  • (1888PressRelease) July 16, 2021 - Celebrated each year in observance of Nelson Mandela's birthday, Mandela Day was officially declared by the United Nations in November 2009, with the first UN Mandela Day held on 18 July 2010. According to MandelaDay.com, “The message behind Mandela Day is simple – everyone has the ability and the responsibility to change the world for the better. If each one of us heeds the call to simply do something good every day, we can live Nelson Mandela’s legacy and help build the country of our dreams.”

    Tennessee United for Human Rights is planning to hold an event to honor Nelson Mandela during July in the Church of Scientology community room in Nashville. “Take Action, Inspire Change,” is the theme for 2021, and in an announcement on tnuhr.org, it reads: “In observance of Mandela Day and recognition of Nelson Mandela, Tennessee United for Human Rights (TnUHR) has organized a special event to introduce Tennesseans to the importance and relevance of Mr. Mandela’s work.”

    Event organizers want to introduce the audience to who was Nelson Mandela, what is he known for, when did the important events of his life happen, why do we honor him today, how can we build on his legacy, and more. The event is set for Sunday, July 18, at noon.
