70 years of the universal declaration of human rights

On December 10th, 1948, the United Nations created the official document of Human Rights. These rights are inherent to all human beings regardless of race, sex, nationality, ethnicity, language, religion, or any other status. Everyone is entitled to these rights, without discrimination. 

Human Rights Week is a celebration and a reminder of these rights. 

Join us at these events all week long at Memorial Union and Union South!
