Human Rights Day – December 10, 2022

The Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) was adopted on December 10, 1948, and forms the backbone of the human rights architecture of our societies. UDHR recognizes that inherent dignity and equal rights are the foundation of freedom, justice and peace in the world. We all have the right to live and thrive in peace and safety.

Since its adoption, laws and, policies embracing human rights have made us freer. Children can assert their needs, women can make their own choices, persons with disabilities can live more independently, and we all enjoy safeguards against tyranny and abuse.

Every year on December 10, the world celebrates Human Rights Day and reaffirms how essential human rights are for each person. Let’s use them as our compass to seek justice, equality, peace, and freedom for all. This year’s Human Rights Day slogan is Dignity, Freedom, and Justice for All and the call to action is #StandUp4HumanRights.
