Organize your own exhibition with posters by renowned graphic designers

1 March 2019

Forty renowned graphic designers from all over the world created a series of posters to illustrate their perception of human rights and invite everyone to #StandUp4HumanRights.

These posters were designed in collaboration with the NGO Poster for Tomorrow for the launch of the 70th Anniversary campaign of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, which took place in Paris on 10 December 2017.

Share your plan with us at standup4humanrights@ohchr.org and we will send you the print quality PDF of the posters.

We look forward to hearing from 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.
