1/17 Pozen Center Festival of Human Rights

Celebrating the 70th Anniversary of the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights
Thursday, January 17, 2019 | 1-8pm
Regenstein Library, Room 122, 1100 E 57th Street


December 10, 2018 marks the 70th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights—the landmark document that for the first time enumerated the fundamental human rights to be universally honored and protected.


On January 17, 2019, the Pozen Family Center for Human Rights will honor and commemorate this milestone anniversary with a Festival of Human Rights. Students, faculty, and community members will select one of the UDHR’s thirty articles and interpret it through a contemporary lens. Over an eight-hour period, attendees will be invited to immerse themselves in the theory and practice of human rights through art making, literature, historical reflection, and more.
