Human Rights Day
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. Human rights are 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.
