From the United Nations website:
“Human Rights Day is observed every year on 10 December — the day the United Nations General Assembly adopted, in 1948, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR). The UDHR is a milestone document, which proclaims the inalienable rights that everyone is entitled to as a human being – regardless of race, colour, religion, sex, language, political or other opinion, national or social origin, property, birth or other status. Available in more than 500 languages, it is the most translated document in the world.”
On behalf of AMI/USA, I welcome Christine Mein as our guest writer for International Human Rights Day. She offers her perspective as a Montessorian, social worker, and global citizen.
