Global Dignity Celebrates 7th Year of Promoting Respect
Initiative shared by leaders encourages students worldwide to fulfill their potential
LOS ANGELES – October 13, 2014 – On Wednesday, October 15th, Global Dignity Day will be celebrated in Los Angeles by Operation HOPE CEO and Global Dignity co-founder John Hope Bryant at Nava College Preparatory Academy, where he will share Dignity Principles and elements from the Less is More campaign. Global Dignity is an initiative promoting self-respect and human rights around the world through dialogue with students,
Bryant believes that mentoring plays a powerful role in the development of any youth and has devoted himself to providing opportunities for students to have access to strong positive role models. “Mentorship is one of the keys of Operation HOPE's mission to empower the underserved; it is also where Global Dignity and HOPE are so perfectly aligned. It is important to encourage opportunity around the world, and empower each individual to believe in his or her fundamental right to dignity, respect, and financial freedom.”
In support of Global Dignity and the Less More campaign, the leading international peacebuilding organization, Interpeace, launched its own globally—crowdsourced #peace campaign on PlayMC2 during the ‘Geneva Peace Talks’ at the United Nations in Geneva, Switzerland this year on September 19th.
Held annually on the third Wednesday of October, Global Dignity Day is celebrated worldwide with volunteers leading “A Course in Dignity” in classrooms. Since 2006, More than 1,000,000 students, in more than 70 countries, have shared the key principles of Global Dignity .
