“All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights.”

– Article 1 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

As people no matter race, country or creed, we’re all legally entitled to certain rights as set into law by the United Nations.

International Human Rights Day is observed every year on December 10. This day marks the momentous occasion in Paris in1948 when the United Nations General assembly proclaimed the Universal Declaration of Human Rights into law.

This year, Human Rights Day kicks off a year-long campaign celebrating the upcoming 70th anniversary of this ground-breaking charter of rights.

When it was declared in 1948, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights set out, for the first time, the fundamental human rights that ought to be protected worldwide regardless of race, religion, sex, language, political or other opinion, national or social origin, property, birth or other status.

The Universal Declaration of Human Rights was drafted by representatives with different legal and cultural backgrounds from all corners of the globe. It is the most translated document in the world, available in over 500 languages.
