WKU CCSJ Presents “Celebrating 70 Years of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights: What it Says and What it Means for Today”
The WKU Center for Citizenship & Social Justice invites you to join us on Thursday, November 29th from 4:00-5:00 pm at the Downing Student Union (DSU), Room 3020 for a celebration honoring 70 years of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
Dr. Sam McFarland will present an overview of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights which will be followed by roundtable discussion. Dr. McFarland explained, “The Universal Declaration of Human Rights, adopted by the United Nations on December 10, 1948, defines the human rights that should belong to every human being, everywhere in the world. Unfortunately, it is not well-known to many Americans today, and the rights it describes are not always respected around the world. To celebrate its seventieth anniversary, I will summarize briefly what it says, how it was created, and what it means for today. Everyone will receive a copy. Participants will then discuss questions about its meaning, significance, and limitations.”
This event is open to anyone interested in participating. If you have any questions, contact email@example.com or call 270-745-3218.
