Embrace diversity, end discrimination

   Human Rights Day 2009 on 10 December will focus on non-discrimination. The High Commissioner for Human   

   Rights, Navi Pillay, will mark the occasion in South Africa.

   The Universal Declaration of Human Rights established 60 years ago that “all human beings are born free and  

   equal in dignity and rights”. Yet today, the fight against discrimination remains a daily struggle for millions

   around the globe.
   Everyone of us can make a difference. We encourage you to mark Human Rights Day 2009 by advocating non-   discrimination, organizing activities, raising awareness and reaching out to your local communities on 10     

   December and throughout 2010.

   Find out more from a special Human Rights Day webpage of the OHCHR website. We will provide

   you with statements of the High Commissioner and the Secretary-General on Human Rights Day 2009 closer to

   December 10.  

   We count on your support and participation to make this year’s focus on non-discrimination a success.
