Human Rights Day 2022 at The Center

Human Rights Day

Why Celebrate Human Rights Day

On December 10, 1948 the United Nations General assembly adopted the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR), a milestone document containing 30 articles proclaiming the inalienable rights of every person regardless of race, color, religion, sex, language, political or other opinion, national or social origin, property, birth or other status. Each December 10, the adoption of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights is commemorated across the world with cultural events and performances, public meetings and seminars, and other educational activities in promotion of human rights.

As an advocate and partner for the promotion of human rights around the world, The Center is proud to invite you to celebrate Human Rights day 2022 with us.
