International Human Rights Day is observed by the international community every year on December 10 to commemorate the United Nations General Assembly adoption of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights in 1948. It is a day to honor all who continue to be oppressed by human rights violations and all who continue to fight and resist systems of oppression for self-determination and liberation all over the world. RISE with us in solidarity on December 10th to transcend boundaries and connect communities to raise awareness of these truths occurring nationally and globally.  

This night includes solidarity statements and cultural presentations from organizational representatives and community members.
