I spent about six hours in Pittsburgh today, where I visited to meet with Rehumanize International to talk shop. Rehumanize has an important mission: “to ensure that each and every human being’s life is respected, valued, and protected.” Rehumanize was founded by Aimee Murphy, who was a fellow Notre Dame Vita Institute participant with me last summer:
Rehumanize International is a non-profit human rights organization dedicated to creating a culture of peace and life, and in so doing, we seek to bring an end to all aggressive violence against humans through education, discourse, and action.
We adhere to an ethos called the Consistent Life Ethic, which calls for an opposition to all forms of aggressive violence against human beings, including but not limited to:
- Abuse (domestic, assault, rape)
- Capital Punishment
- Embryonic Stem-Cell Research
- Human Trafficking
- Physician Assisted Suicide
- Police brutality
- Poverty Issues
- Unjust War
The Consistent Life Ethic serves as the philosophical foundation of our advocacy.
Additionally, we achieve our vision by maintaining our organization as non-sectarian and non-partisan, and furthermore by promoting collaboration amongst many organizations across movements.
I took these photos on the way in and out of the city.
