Why Dominicans and Human Rights?

“The focus on human rights touches and unifies every aspect of our work to respect and defend the inherent dignity and freedom of each and every person which is at the heart of the Good News that Jesus, the Incarnate Word, came to preach”
- From the final statement of the Salamanca International Congress of the Order of Preachers, September 2016
