How will you help?

December 10th is Human Rights Day.
The 60th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights occurs on December 10, 2008, and the UN Secretary-General has launched a year-long campaign to lead up to this anniversary. Because the UDHR holds the world record as the most translated document (with more than 360 language versions available), organizations around the globe will be able to use the year to focus on helping people everywhere learn about their rights.

What will you do to help people learn about their rights? Here are some suggestions:

Join Human Rights Watch or check out what's happening over at Students for a Free Tibet. You can also attend Amnesty International's Human Rights Day conference by clicking here or click here and scroll to the bottom for events being held around the globe.

There is a ton more to do, but I'm too lazy to post more and my son is having surgery so I leave you to your own devices to do something, anything to honor the day.
