Presidential Proclamation — Human Rights Day and Human Rights Week, 2016

The day: December 10, 2016   The week: Beginning December 10, 2016

First paragraph of the proclamation: “When the Universal Declaration of Human Rights was adopted on December 10, 1948, it set in motion a movement to secure liberty and justice for all people. Out of the ashes of the Second World War, the United Nations General Assembly proclaimed that “All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights.” On Human Rights Day and during Human Rights Week, we reflect on how far we have come in upholding these universal rights and resolve to continue fighting to safeguard them wherever they are threatened.”
