September 19, 2013 (FPRC) -- Five members of Youth for Human Rights (YHR) participated in the international “Erase Bullying” event at the Lush Handmade Cosmetics Store at International Plaza this week.

The delegation from YHR, who come from Columbia, Russia and Quebec wanted to show their support for this campaign, which was inspired by one of Lush’s employees.

From August 31st to September 13th, visitors to Lush’s stores have been invited to ‘erase’ hurtful words from the windows of the stores. With this event, Lush is hoping to “cultivate a kinder world by choosing to be compassionate in our everyday lives,” (from their website).

Lush Handmade Cosmetics, founded in the United Kingdom in 1996, focuses on cruelty-free, ethically sourced soaps, shampoos, lotions and other personal care items. In 2007 they launched Charity Pot, a hand and body lotion where 100% of the purchase price goes into a special fund which is contributed to environmental, humanitarian and animal rights charities. Two million dollars have been contributed to charities through this program.

Youth for Human Rights is a multi-national, multi-faith group of young people whose purpose is to educate others on the United Nation’s Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

“I have seen teenagers beg to have the Youth for Human Rights program implemented in their schools because they need our help to end the bullying and other violations of human rights they experience,” said Paola Martinez, YHR spokesperson.

Program materials include "The Story of Human Rights," a documentary video that illustrates the history of human rights through the ages; booklets; public service announcements that educate youth and adults on the 30 articles of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Several of these public service announcements show the harm created by bullying.

Schools that have implemented the program have noticed a decrease in school violence and incidents of bullying.

Members of the Church of Scientology sponsor this secular, grass-roots program, funding the printing and distribution of these educational materials.

“Central to Scientology beliefs is a conviction that all humankind is entitled to inalienable rights,” said Church spokesperson Pat Harney. “It is in the spirit of our founder L. Ron Hubbard’s statement that ‘Human rights must be made a fact, not an idealistic dream’ that our parishioners contribute to such programs.”
