UDHR. The Universal Declaration of Human Rights. The basic underpinning of international law. A common framework of achievement for every person, everywhere. An acronym....that happens to start with YOU!

Join us in Advancing Human Rights: The UDHR Campaign 2013 as we celebrate the tenacity, innovation, and spirit of our member and partner organizations. These grassroots and national groups work tirelessly to uphold human rights as set forth in the UDHR. We are proud to feature our members, partners and their inspiring work over the course of the next nine weeks, leading up to Human Rights Day on December 10, 2013.

Each week of The UDHR Campaign 2013 will feature a different theme that represents civil, political, economic, cultural and social rights. We invite you to click on the links below to learn more about the groups behind the most innovative human rights work being carried out in the US.
