Human Rights Day 2015

Today is Human Rights Day. Ban-Ki Moon’s message this year focuses on the four freedoms: freedom of expression, freedom of worship, freedom from want and freedom from fear. President Franklin D. Roosevelt and his wife Eleanor Roosevelt enshrined these freedoms into the Universal Declaration of Human Rights in 1941 during an uncertain time across the world. Even today, these freedoms are more relevant and more important than ever. The Advocacy Project is fully committed to these freedoms and we will always strive to ensure our clients’ freedoms are protected You can read the full message on the United Nations website
