DECEMBER 9, 2022
On December 10, 1948, the United Nations General Assembly adopted the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) affirming that “all human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights.” Tomorrow, we honor the UDHR and its proclamation that human rights are to be universally protected. All persons have these rights and should be free to exercise them, without discrimination, no matter what they believe, whom they love, or where they live. All means all. Read full release HERE.
