Human Rights Day

Home » News » Human Rights Day

Tomorrow, Saturday 10th December is internationally recognised as Human Rights Day. It commemorates the day in 1948 when the Universal Declaration of Human Rights was adopted by the UN General Assembly.
This year, each of us are asked to stand up for someone's rights! The Human Rights Day website notes that, "disrespect for basic human rights continues to be widespread in all parts of the globe". It also challenges us to "Step forward and defend the rights of a refugee or migrant, a person with disabilities, an LGBT person, a woman, a child, indigenous peoples, a minority group, or anyone else at risk of discrimination or violence." It is down to each of us. To see their video on the topic, click here.
