Hosts Celeste Carey and Cecil Prescod honor the International The Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the foundation of international human rights law. Adopted in 1948, the UDHR has inspired a rich body of legally binding international human rights treaties.
Today is Human Rights Day, an annual celebration of human rights and a day of advocating for the full enjoyment of all human rights by everyone everywhere.
In 2012 the focus is the rights of all people — women, youth, minorities, persons with disabilities, indigenous people, the poor and marginalized — to make their voices heard in public life and be included in political decision-making.
