These same persons have a right to dream and imagine a life of their choosing and we are here to support those dreams and help them with opportunities to achieve.
December is Universal Human Rights Month
December 10, 2023 marks the 75th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) by the United Nations.
This document enshrines the basic and unalienable rights that everyone is entitled to, regardless of race, color, religion, sex, language, political opinion, sexual orientation or nationality. It was signed in Paris in 1948 to protect the fundamental rights for all persons, including the rights to food, education, work, health and liberty.
In the 75 years since its signing, the document has been the foundation for further expanding those rights to include other groups, such as those with disabilities, indigenous peoples and migrants. Since the proclamation of the UDHR, the fight continues to ensure that all peoples have basic human rights. Because of this, December is recognized as Universal Human Rights Month.
You can contribute by learning more about others who are different than you and standing up to help them receive the rights they may not be given. In this way, you help encourage equality, justice and freedom in your community and make sure no one is left behind.
