All Human Beings are Born Free and Equal in Dignity and Rights
The annual Article 3 Advisors Human Rights Day program is a time to pause, reflect and focus on a defining human rights issue of our time, with topics selected that are deeply rooted in social, political and economic history and profoundly relevant to current events. Hosted in partnership with Humanity United, Stupski Foundation, and The Philanthropy Workshop, this stimulating, thought provoking and engaging event is intended for philanthropists, activists, practitioners, civic leaders, and change agents who are oriented towards understanding complex issues, passing on knowledge and acting on solutions. It is our hope that the program serves as a catalyst for a rich dialogue and a deeper understanding among key stakeholders and influencers.
For this year’s event we have chosen to focus on the 70th Anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) and will highlight Article 1 which states: “All Human Beings are Born Free and Equal in Dignity and Rights".
To further mark this special, commemorative year, we will celebrate and honor Aryeh Neier’s historic contributions and profound impact on the Human Rights Movement. Aryeh Neier has devoted his life to advancing rights and protecting dignity, and his work embodies the principles enshrined in the UDHR.
Human Rights Day is observed by the International Community every year in December. It commemorates the day in 1948 that the United Nations General Assembly adopted the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
In a time of uncertainty and challenge we hope to connect the history, the urgency for today and the relevance for tomorrow of a human rights centered approach to peace, justice and security.
