On December 10th, 1948, the UN General Assembly adopted the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, a groundbreaking document which outlined the 30 fundamental rights that people are entitled to across the world. In celebration, December 10th has been named Human Rights Day; how is your Campus Chapter going to celebrate it?
To promote and raise awareness, the UN Human Rights Office is launching on Human Rights Day “Our Rights. Our Freedoms. Always," a year-long campaign to shine a light on the inalienable and inherent rights of global citizens -- now, and always.
“Our Rights. Our Freedoms. Always.” revolves around the timeless themes of rights and freedom and the relevance of the work that continues in securing and ensuring them. At its core, FREEDOM, underpins the International Bill of Human Rights – freedom from fear, freedom of speech, freedom of worship and freedom from want.
