Human Rights Day 2021

December 10, 2021 @ 12:00 PM - 1:30 PM EST

On December 10th, nations, institutions, and communities will come together to commemorate the 73rd anniversary of the adoption of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) by the United Nations. The UDHR proclaims the undeniable rights that everyone is entitled to as a human being and serves as a foundational document for dialogue and action to address all forms of discrimination. This year’s theme – Equality: Reducing inequalities, advancing human rights – calls on us to address discrimination that affects some of the world’s most vulnerable people.

Please join us this Friday December 10, 2021 from 12:00pm to 1:30pm EST for an online conversation to celebrate Human Rights Day. The conversation will feature a panel of experts who will speak on human rights in connection with the Sustainable Development Goals on gender equality, economic growth, climate action, and peace, justice and strong institutions.

This event is sponsored by the Eberly College Interdisciplinary Research Collaborative on Global Challenges and Local Response Initiatives, the WVU Center for Resilient Communities, and gLAWcal – Global Law Initiatives for Sustainable Development.
