All human beings are born with equal and inalienable rights
and fundamental freedoms.
The United Nations is committed to upholding, promoting and protecting
the human rights of every individual. This commitment stems from the
United Nations Charter, which reaffirms the faith of the peoples of the world in
fundamental human rights and in the dignity and worth of the human person.
In the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the United Nations has stated
in clear and simple terms the rights which belong equally to every person.
These rights belong to you.
They are your rights.
Familiarize yourself with them.
Help to promote and defend them for yourself as well as for your fellow human beings.
