Celebrating 70 years of Universal Human Rights

2018 marks the 70th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR). We're kicking off celebrations with March for Human Rights, a digital campaign with community events, to celebrate universal human rights, from the UDHR to the Human Rights Act.

Human Rights Tour events

Our community events, the Human Rights Tour, takes to the road on 20 March for 4 days, visiting a range of towns and cities. Come along to get current, accurate information about the relevance of human rights law in the UK and how it protects us. We will be looking at our human rights history, celebrating how we got to where we are today, and thinking about our human rights future. Everyone is welcome. Individuals working in the public sector and the voluntary sector are encouraged to attend.

Join the digital action

We will be launching a 10 day online celebration of human rights on 14 March. We are running a series of guest blogs, featuring real life stories, and we are hosting a Twitter chat on Friday 16 March from 12-1.30pm. Check out our campaign hub and follow us on Twitter or like us on Facebook to get the latest campaign updates.

And most importantly you can sign the UDHR birthday card:

The Universal Declaration of Human Rights is 70 this year, and we are collecting signatures for the UDHR birthday card. We will be collecting signatures all year before presenting the card to the United Nations and the UK Parliament on Human Rights Day (10 December), to show the widespread support for universal human rights across the UK
