It's Human Rights Day!

This day was created by the United Nations and promotes awareness of the importance of Human Rights issues around the world.  On the date in 1948, the U.N. General Assembly adopted the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

Here in the United States we tend to take human rights for granted, however, elsewhere in the world, freedom and basic human rights are not a given.

You can celebrate this day by learning more about human rights issues around the globe.  You may also wish to offer your time and money in support of a human rights issue that is important to you.

Now Let's P-A-R-T-Y!!!
