Transforming Global Visions to Local Actions

International Forum
Saturday, April 16, 2011 to Sunday, April 17, 2011
Hilton Hawaiian Village: Mid Pacific Conference Center

Forum Overview

Human Rights have the potential to transform human lives. But realizing the promise of rights enumerated in the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD), as well as other international treaties, requires political will and the commitment of state actors, local government, and civil society. Our common vision—that each human being be treated with inherent dignity—is the foundation which inspires and facilitates the meaning of human rights standards, norms and procedures into transformative social change. The codification of rights lays the groundwork to realize an inclusive, equitable and just world; but human action is what makes it happen.
