Human Rights Day

A day to remember the inalienable rights which everyone is entitled to as a human being - regardless of race, colour, religion, sex, language, political or other opinion, national or social origin, property, birth or other status

Human Rights in a Post-COVID World

Human Rights Day is observed every year on 10 December — the day the United Nations General Assembly adopted, in 1948, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR). The UDHR is a milestone document that proclaims the inalienable rights which everyone is entitled to as a human being – regardless of race, colour, religion, sex, language, political or other opinion, national or social origin, property, birth or other status. Available in more than 500 languages, it is the most translated document in the world.

Human Rights day is one of seven UN days the Augustinians specifically set aside for prayer, education, and action.  It is a day in which Augustinians friars renew their commitment to take a stand to defend and promote the basic human rights and human dignity of all persons.
