Human Rights Day – December 10
Celebration ~ Education
Vigil and Leafletting at Lytton Plaza

To celebrate International Human Rights Day, Peninsula Peace and Justice Center will hold a vigil and leafletting in downtown Palo Alto at lunchtime, demanding that the U.S. government uphold United Nations standards for human rights and stop engaging in torture. We’ll have a new administration soon -- let’s make sure they keep their promises of change!

Sponsored by Peninsula Peace and Justice Center.

From the Preamble to the Universal Declaration of Human Rights: "The General Assembly proclaims this Universal Declaration of Human Rights as a common standard of achievement for all peoples and all nations, to the end that every individual and every organ of society, keeping this Declaration constantly in mind, shall strive by teaching and education to promote respect for these rights and freedoms and by progressive measures, national and international, to secure their universal and effective recognition and observance, both among the peoples of Member States themselves and among the peoples of territories under their jurisdiction."
