Initiative Type: 

This initiative is no longer active.

The human rights movement in the U.S. is growing rapidly; USHRN is lifting up those who are making that happen. The #udhr2014 campaign, which ran from November 10 to December 10, 2014, celebrated the organizations doing critical human rights work and tells the stories of people who have faced human rights challenges.

Check out how USHRN members and partners defend our human rights through the stories of the people they serve.

The #udhr2014 campaign led up to Human Rights Day, marked on December 10 to celebrate the UN's proclamation of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR).

You can join the conversation using #udhr2014 and can support the campaign by sharing the videos and stories posted below.
