“Celebrating Older Persons Human Rights”

Let us stand up for Equality, Justice, and Human Dignity December 10, 2018 09:00 am – 3:30 pm Human Rights Day is observed on December 10th of every year. This commemorates the day on which, in 1948, the United Nations General Assembly adopted the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. In 1950, the Assembly passed resolution 423 (V), inviting all States and interested organizations to observe 10 December of each year as Human Rights Day. Individuals, institutions and social profits come together to recommit to the principle that, all persons are equal in dignity, rights and responsibilities without regard to race, religious beliefs, colour, gender identity, physical disability, age, ancestry, place of origin, sexual orientation or otherwise.

This year marks the 70th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR). The MCA will be joining other communities around the world on December 10, 2018 for the Celebration of Human Rights Day with theme “Celebrating Older Persons Human Rights”.

Human rights are our basic rights and freedoms. They include our right to live, our right to health, education, freedom of speech and thoughts, and equal rights. Please come and join community experts who will share their knowledge on a diverse-human rights responsive approach to

– Promote Human Rights and What it means in the Daily lives of older persons

– Raise the visibility of older people as participating members of society

– Reflect on progress and challenges in ensuring full and equal enjoyment of Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms by older persons

-Engage broad audiences across the region and mobilize people for Human Rights at all stages of life

Social Profits are invited to set up a table with resources for seniors. Please contact us at [email protected] for more information or to secure a table for your organization.

Let us be part of making positive impact in our community!
