The United Nations Association of Greater Philadelphia and the Ethical Humanist Society of Philadelphia are organized a themed celebration of the 63rd anniversary of the adoption of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights Day.
Here we are tabling along with several other human rights and other organizations in Philadelphia. There was a celebratory overlay, as we toasted the great legacy of Eleanor Roosevelt, and Christiaan Morssink, president of UNA-GP, discussed the moral and practical value of the sheer existence of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Yet, he explained, much work is needed. Hence this year's theme:
Are There Disposable People? The Case of Trafficking. Guest speaker Hugh Organ, Philadelphia Anti-Trafficking Coalition gave a powerful presentation on all the work that's been done locally on the issue.
