HRRC's Response:


December 10th is International Human Rights Day. This is held annually on the day that the UN General Assembly adopted the 1948 Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR). This declaration proclaims the inalienable rights of all human beings and has been translated into more than 500 languages, making it one of the most widely translated documents in the world.


The 2021 theme of International Human Rights Day is to reduce inequalities and advance human rights. Included in the UN's recognition of this day, the organization outlines their agenda and goals for 2030, as well as their goals to rebuild a fairer, greener, and ultimately better society for all people.


HRRC was established to educate on human rights through facts, advocate using our research findings, and take action to implement change. We support the rights of all.
