Universal Human Rights Month

December 1-31

What is Universal Human Rights Month?

December 10, 1948, the United Nations General Assembly adopted the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR).  The document proclaims the inalienable rights which everyone is entitled to as a human being - regardless of race, colour, religion, sex, language, political or other opinion, national or social origin, property, birth or other status.

The Universal Declaration of Human Rights has been translated into more than 500 languages and holds the Guinness World Record for the most translated document.
