Human Rights 75 Initiative

Human Rights 75

2023 marks the 75th anniversary of the Declaration of Human Rights. In the aftermarth of World War II the General Assembly of the United Nations adopted the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Human Rights 75 is an initiative whose three main goals focus on universality, progress and engagement under the leadership of UN Human Rights, together with its partners.

The 75th anniversary is an opportunity to rejuvenate the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, demonstrate how it can meet the needs of our time and advance its promise of freedom, equality and justice for all.

In his message for the 75th anniversary UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, Volker Türk, said:

“If there was ever a moment to revitalise the hope of human rights for every person, it is now. Join me in rejuvenating the Universal Declaration, demonstrate how it can meet the needs of our time and advance its promise of freedom, equality and justice for all.”

Human trafficking and slavery are violations of human rights. ACRATH invites you to mark the 75th anniversary by reflecting on how you might support efforts to eliminate human trafficking and slavery.
