United Nations Day 2023






The UN is the only global institution with human rights at its core. The Universal Declaration of Human Rights document is a milestone in UN history where freedom, equality and justice for all inspired, and paved the way for, the adoption of more than seventy human rights treaties, applied today on a permanent basis at global and regional levels.

The UDHR’s 75th Anniversary, UNA-USA’s theme for UN Day 2023, aims to celebrate the first universally protected fundamental human rights document. With its 30 articles, the UDHR serves as a constant reminder that human rights are universal, indivisible, and essential for a just and harmonious global community. It continues to inspire advocacy, promote accountability, and encourage the pursuit of a world where the rights and dignity of all individuals are upheld and protected.
