Human Rights Day is observed on the 10th December each year. It falls on the same day that the United Nations General Assembly adopted the Universal Declaration of Human Rights back in 1948.
This declaration was a huge milestone in proclaiming the inalienable rights which everyone is entitled to as a human being, regardless of their race, colour, religion, sex, language, identity, or any other opinion or feeling.
Did you know? Currently available in 500 languages, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights is the most translated document in the world!
Recover Better - Stand Up for Human Rights
This year, Human Rights Day directly relates to the impact of COVID-19 and focuses on the requirement to rebuild back to a better and more understanding world whilst ensuring Human Rights are the centralized focus in the recovery efforts.
In order to reach our common global goals, we have to create equal opportunities for everyone by first highlighting failures exposed and exploited by Coronavirus. We must apply human rights standards to begin challenging the entrenched, systematic and inter-generational inequalities alongside exclusion and discrimination.
Human Rights Day is a core opportunity to focus on the importance of human rights throughout the world and expose the areas where human rights are being infringed upon. After everything that's happened this year, the need for global solidarity and shared humanity is as important as ever!
