Human Rights Day Toolkit

This year marks the 66th anniversary of adoption of the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights, commemorated by the world community each year on December 10th. On this day, as people of faith who acknowledge the importance of protecting the God-given dignity of every human being, we reaffirm the Universal Declaration’s statement that “no one shall be subjected to torture or to cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment.”

The National Religious Campaign Against Torture invites you and your congregation, campus ministry, or religious organization to observe Human Rights Day during worship services, as a part of your religious education efforts, through advocacy activities, or with a special event on or around December 10.
