Team read attempt is 'one for the record'
Six women will arrive at MDC’s InterAmerican Campus at 8 a.m. on Monday, Nov. 2, and commence a continuous reading of the 30 articles of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
If the reading goes uninterrupted for 10 days – 240 hours – the women, members of the International Solidarity for Human Rights, will earn the Guinness World Record for longest reading aloud marathon by a team.
Elizabeth Sánchez Vega, president of the International Solidarity for Human Rights, said the reading was conceived as a way to raise global awareness and promote education on human rights.
“To educate by creating an awareness and consciousness of human rights through the arts, that’s where we are different from all the other organizations,” Sánchez Vega said. “We are very grateful that MDC has given us the opportunity to allow one of our initiatives to take flight.”
