All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights. This is the first article of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, which the United Nations General Assembly adopted on December 10, 1948. Since 1950, the United Nations and organizations around the world have observed Human Rights Day every December 10 to commemorate the signing of this landmark declaration.
The United Nations has designated this year’s Human Rights Day slogan, “Dignity, Freedom, and Justice for All” and the call to action is #StandUp4HumanRights. KIND envisions a world in which the human rights of unaccompanied children and all people are respected, and our daily work assisting and protecting unaccompanied child migrants aspires to make this vision a reality.
