Human Rights Day 2022

Human Rights Day, observed every year on December 10, honors the United Nation’s adoption of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) and all that it protects. Regardless of race, color, religion, sex, language, political opinion, national origin, property, or birth, we are all entitled to inalienable rights as human beings. Though we have made much progress towards these goals, there’s still much to be done.

We invite chapters to plan their own Human Rights Day programming with the help of our toolkit, and all UNA-USA members are encouraged to attend our virtual conversation on the U.S. response to human rights issue areas including indigenous, immigrant, and women’s sexual and reproductive health rights on December 8th from 8:00 – 9:00 p.m. ET.
