The Universal Declaration of Human Rights is an invitation to take action for a world that is more just and where people can live as equals, in dignity.

We invite you to express your support to these universal principles by adding your photo to one of our filters, inspired by the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, and by sharing it on social media using the hashtag #StandUp4HumanRights.

Help us spread the word. Wherever we are, we can make a difference by standing up for everyone’s human rights.

  • 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.
