Youth for Human Rights International will be holding its 15th Annual International Human Rights Summit on July 5th - 7th, 2018 in New York. We invite attendees from all walks of life who are passionate about human rights education to attend the summit, free of charge. This year we celebrate the 70th Anniversary of the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
A population ignorant of its rights cannot demand or defend them. Yet few in the world today know even two or three of their 30 rights as expressed in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR).
Join officials and advocates from around the world who work for equality and justice through human rights education. Hear from youth and adult human rights champions. Collaborate with other passionate young men and women to make human rights a global reality. Establish international partnerships and friendships with delegates from more than 60 countries across the planet who share your commitment to human rights.
The Summit will feature the 2018 Human Rights Hero Awards, acknowledging those whose courage and determination has raised the bar on human rights in their respective nations and communities.
