Drafted by representatives of diverse legal and cultural backgrounds from all regions of the world, the Declaration sets out universal values and a common standard of achievement for all peoples and all nations. It establishes the equal dignity and worth of every person.
The Universal Declaration of Human Rights empowers us all. The principles enshrined in the Declaration are as relevant today as they were in 1948. We need to stand up for our own rights and those of others. We can take action in our own daily lives, to uphold the rights that protect us all and thereby promote the kinship of all human beings.

“While mass displacements may be preventable, none are voluntary... Asylum seekers and refugees are entitled to all rights and fundamental freedoms that are spelled out in international human rights instruments; their protection must therefore be seen in the broader context of the protection of human rights”. ~ Bettina Hausmann, President & Executive Director UNA-USA San Diego
