Celebration of 70th Anniversary of Universal Declaration of Human Rights

Sunday, December 9, 2018


Children's Rights, Human Rights:
A Multicultural Celebration of Our Future

The Eugene Human Rights Commission, WeCU (Whole Eugene Community United, an Human Rights Commission work group), and Churchill High School invite you to celebrate the 70th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights

The celebration is free, open to the public, and all ages are welcome to enjoy: 

  • Food
  • Song 
  • Dance
  • Speakers
  • Live Music
  • Children's corner
The event will focus on global and local human rights from the perspective of children, and on the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child, a treaty which has been ratified by every country in the United Nations, except for the United States, which has also not ratified the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. 
 
Entertainment will include performances by children and youth groups representing different cultures, religions, and ethnicities. Speakers will highlight efforts to protect children’s rights. Food will include cuisine from different cultures.
