Take stock of the state of human rights today and reflect how each of us can stand up for rights, every day.

The campaign is an opportunity to celebrate the achievements of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, but also to mobilize a global constituency to stand for rights.

Please join us.

  • Take stock and publicise the progress your country/organisation/company has made in human rights, as well as the remaining gaps.
  • Hold thematic discussions/international conferences about the challenges and opportunities for human rights yesterday, today and tomorrow.
  • Create an award to recognize the extraordinary achievements in the field of human rights.
  • Partner with UN Human Rights to jointly plan a high-level moment to take stock and reflect on human rights.
  • Participate in the global events organised by UN Human Rights near you.
  • I will respect your rights regardless of who you are. I will uphold your rights even when I disagree with you
  • When anyone’s human rights are denied, everyone's rights are undermined, so I will stand up
  • I will raise my voice. I will take action. I will use my rights to stand up for your rights.
