In 1950, the United Nations General Assembly declared December 10th as Human Rights Day, to commemorate the 1948 adoption of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the establishment of “a common standard of achievement for all peoples and all nations.”  In every way, youth are central to the human rights discussion today: as victims of human rights abuses and as the frontline in the fight for justice and equality for all.  Join the Youth, Prosperity, and Security Initiative for a discussion on the most pressing human rights issues for young people around the world, and how youth themselves are addressing complex, interconnected, and context-specific human rights challenges.
