December 10, 2018: Thanks to the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR), and nations’ commitments to its principles, the dignity of millions has been uplifted, untold human suffering prevented and the foundations for a more just world have been laid. While its promise is yet to be fulfilled, the very fact that it has stood the test of time is testament to the enduring universality of its perennial values of equality, justice and human dignity. To educate about and to honor the 70th anniversary of the UDHR, members of the HRW Student Task Force hosted film screenings, art contests, photo challenges, posted visual displays around campus and filmed videos expressing why the anniversary is so significant.
