Friday, December 10, 2021 was the 73rd anniversary of the United Nations’ adoption of the Universal Declaration for Human Rights (UDHR), a document that proclaims the rights of every human being, regardless of race, gender, age, nationality, religion, political opinion, birth place, or any other status.

STFers celebrated this milestone and raised awareness about human rights on their campuses with events including all-school presentations, chalk art, information tables, paper chain displays, and more!
