December is the Universal Declaration of Human Rights Month. On December 9, 2001, President George W. Bush declared the first Human Rights Week, and it has since become a month long worldwide holiday. The month highlights the human rights codified in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, adopted by the General Assembly of the United Nations on December 10, 1948.  Follow the Institute on Facebook and Twitter for themed posts.
