World Passports, IDs, Birth Certificates and Marriage Licenses – Learn about them and apply for your own

Discussion workshop
Aug 12 2016  13:00 - 15:30

The World Passport, based on the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR), is a tool for people to claim their human rights around the world. Thousands of refugees and stateless people have used it to claim back their identity, their dignity, and in many cases their freedom. See http://theworldismycountry.com/RefugeePassports.html
As the recent news about yasiin bey’s World Passport challenges in South Africa make clear, the WP is not an assured travel document. Never-the-less over 90% of nations have stamped it, at least on occasion. www.worldservice.org/visas.html

Moreover, The World Passport is symbol of our one world and our connection to humanity as a whole. ,

Come see excerpts from the forthcoming film “The World Is My Country” showing the founding of the World Service Authority and the impact of its human rights documents. You’ll also have the opportunity to apply for your own World Passports, IDs, Birth Certificates, and Marriage Certificates, etc. These documents are often used by couples in jurisdictions where same-sex marriages are not recognized — to get housing, work benefits and more.
