The Missouri Western Legal Studies Association and the Department of Criminal Justice, Legal Studies and Social Work are sponsoring Missouri Western State University’s third International Human Rights Day Celebration THIS Wednesday, November 20th, 2019. This event is free and open to the public. All students, faculty and staff are both welcomed and encouraged to attend!

This year’s celebration will be in the form of the annual Human Rights Fair — Student Poster Presentations on human rights issues will be made from 11:00am to 12:30pm in the 1st floor lobby of the Blum Student Union. Student projects will emphasize human rights within a local and global context. Projects will include readings and research related to local and global human rights issues.

Why we celebrate Human Rights:

The Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) is a milestone document that proclaimed the inalienable rights which everyone is inherently entitled to as a human being — regardless of race, colour, religion, sex, language, political or other opinion, national or social origin, property, birth or other status. The Universal Declaration of Human Rights is the most translated document in the world, available in more than 500 languages. The goal of this program is to educate students and the community to take action to uphold the rights that protect us all and promote the kinship of all human beings.
