On December 10th, 2015, it is human rights day.
“In 1950, the General Assembly of the United Nations proclaimed 10 December as Human Rights Day. This day is meant to raise awareness for the role of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights as the “common standard of achievement for all peoples and all nations.”
We have come a long way so far but we still have a long way to go. And especially at this precise moment in time, it is very important to remind ourselves of the importance in recognising human rights.
Here is some history on the evolution of human rights in Canada. The first country to have a human rights museum (which is located in Winnipeg, Manitoba) of this kind. Let’s hope it will contribute to educate people and make a better world.
“The Canadian Museum for Human Rights (CMHR) is the first museum solely dedicated to the evolution, celebration and future of human rights.”
