About International Human Rights Day

Every year, December 10 is marked with the celebration of Human Rights Day worldwide because it is about the empowerment of all. It came into existence in 1948 when the Universal Declaration of Human Rights was adopted by the United Nations. It was a 'milestone document' as it proclaimed inalienable rights that every human being is entitled to regardless of race, colour, religion, sex, language, political or another opinion, national or social origin, property, birth or another status. As this day marks its 71st anniversary, the UN has declared the theme of 2019 as 'Youth Standing Up for Human Rights'.
