Human Rights Day is observed every year on 10 December — the day the United Nations General Assembly adopted in 1948, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR).
The UDHR is a milestone document that proclaims the inalienable rights which everyone is entitled to as a human being – regardless of race, colour, religion, sex, language, political or other opinion, national or social origin, property, birth or other status.
We all have a right to know our rights – our human rights can’t be respected, defended or claimed if we don’t know what they are. In the video you will find selected articles of the UDHR we showcase current Human Rights violations occurring in multiple regions of the world.
Proud partners of “Seeing A Bright Future Clearly: A 2020 Vision of Human Rights”, a celebration of International Human Rights Day, we’d like reframe our call to action
“Awareness is a precondition to action. Our human rights cannot be respected, defended or claimed if we don’t know what they are. Human rights should be completely non negotiable and only will be, when we make them so.”
-Bettina Hausmann, President, UNA-USA San Diego Chapter
