Human Rights Day recognizes the adoption of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights on December 10, 1948 by the United Nations General Assembly. The Declaration outlines the inalienable rights of all people and has since served as the benchmark for the extension and protection of human rights and fundamental freedoms. Eleanor Roosevelt chaired the drafting committee, which included members from Lebanon, USSR, China, France, Australia, Chile, Canada, and the United Kingdom. December 10, 2011 is the 63rd anniversary of the Universal Declaration. For more about Human Rights Day and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, visit http://www.humanrights.gov.
