Universal Human Rights Month
December is Universal Human Rights Month, a time for people in the United States and around the world to join together and stand up for the rights and dignity of all individuals.
December 10th is Human Rights Day, marking the date in 1948 that the U.S. adopted the Universal Declaration
Article I of the 1948 Universal Declaration of Human Rights by the United Nations states,
“All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights.”
Sadly, many people around the world have not experienced this truth. They face discrimination and persecution because of race, national origin, sex, gender, religion, age, language, or other status.
This December, we at Leland Parachini would like to honor Universal Human Rights Month and express our support for the ongoing cause of human rights around the world.
