Human Rights Day

When : Always December 10

Human Rights Day, created by the United Nations, promotes awareness of the importance of Human Rights issues around the world. On this date in 1948, the UN General Assembly adopted the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Each year, the United Nations, establishes a new theme for the year. This year’s theme is inclusion and the right to participate in public life.
Human rights is something we easily take for granted in the United States. Elsewhere, freedom and basic human rights are not a given.

Participate in this day by learning more about human rights issues around the globe. Offer your time and money in support of a human rights issue that is important to you.

Origin of Human Rights Day:
The United Nations General Assembly created the first Human Rights Day on December 10, 1948. Since then, it day has been promoted annually by the UN, and by Human Rights groups around the world.
