The Church of Scientology International has long worked on Human Rights issues. It is ever part of the Scientology: Code of a Scientologist to "support true humanitarian endeavors in the fields of human rights."

One of the ways the Church works to support such endeavors is to promote the use of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Although most governments on earth have adopted this United Nations document, few enforce its application - witness the most recent violations of basic human rights by the United States in the treatment of prisoners of war.

One way that human rights can be made a reality is to educate youth on this declaration, and its application in their lives. To that end, the Church of Scientology sponsors a program called "Youth for Human Rights".

Here's an article on a new chapter of this group, recently established in India:
