Happy Human Rights Day


On December 6th we celebrated The 2018 Human Rights Awards at the National Education Association as we honored individuals and organizations working to improve human rights in their communities and around the world. Full coverage of the event coming soon.

United Nations Secretary-General António Guterres on Human Rights Day:

"For 70 years, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights has been a global beacon – shining a light for dignity, equality and well-being … and bringing hope to dark places. 
The rights proclaimed in the Declaration apply to everyone -- no matter our race, belief, location or other distinction of any kind. 
Human rights are universal and eternal. 
They are also indivisible.
One cannot pick and choose among civil, political, economic, social and cultural rights. 
Today we also honour the human rights defenders risking their lives to protect people in the face of rising hatred, racism, intolerance and repression. 
Indeed, human rights are under siege around the world. 
Universal values are being eroded. The rule of law is being undermined. 
Now more than ever, our shared duty is clear: 
Let us stand up for human rights -- for everyone, everywhere. 
Thank you."

Stand Up For Human Rights!

As we celebrate the 70th Anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights we must be aware of the Human Rights around the world that are currently under threat. While we must commemorate the Universal Declaration of Human Rights we must also take action to ensure its principles are being upheld in every corner of the world. 

In recognition of this important anniversary – and acknowledging that much work is left to do to secure human rights for all – a resolution was just introduced in both the U.S. Senate and U.S. House of Representatives to honor this historic document. Take action and ask your Representative and Senators to become an original cosponsor of this resolution!
