60th Anniversary of the UDHR
UUSC celebrated in 2009 the 60th anniversary of a remarkable document that has guided and inspired our work, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR).
In its preamble, the UDHR affirms that all people have rights and that these rights are the "foundation of freedom, justice and peace in the world."
Through the years, this vision of universal rights has given rise to countless movements for positive social change — many led by UUSC, its partners, and allies.
- Justice Sunday — On Justice Sunday, UU congregations celebrated 60 years of justice through activism and education (March 29, 2009, for most congregations).
- Listen.Reflect.Act — EVERYONE can Listen. Reflect. Act. in support of human rights, for 60 seconds, 60 minutes, or 60 days!
- Give a gift — Make a special $60 UDHR commemorative gift to UUSC that makes YOU a member of UUSC.
- Read — Read stories that link the UDHR to UUSC's ongoing human rights work.
- Attend a talk or pulpit event by UUSC President Charlie Clements about the UDHR.
- Relive UUSC's Rights Night and learn more about Rev. Gloria White-Hammond, the recipient of UUSC's Eleanor Roosevelt Human Rights Award.
