Human Rights Matter to Everyone!

A CCNY 2016 Art Competition: The Theme of Human Rights

Human rights recognize the inherent value of each person, based on principles of dignity, equality and mutual respect, which are shared across cultures, religions and philosophies. The Universal Declaration of Human Rights adopted by the United Nations on December 10, 1948, sets out the basic rights and freedoms that apply to all people.
