State House of Representatives
Oklahoma Capitol
2300 N Lincoln Blvd

Oklahoma" (Tulsa), Dr. Jeanne Mather (Chickasha),

Human Rights Day (December 10th) is celebrated around the world. It is
the anniversary of the day in 1948 when the General Assembly of the
United Nations adopted the
Universal Declaration of Human Rights
(UDHR), the first global enunciation of human rights and one of the first
major achievements of the new United Nations.

The Universal Declaration of Human Rights arose directly from the
experience of the Second World War and represents the first global
expression of rights to which all human beings are inherently entitled.

The thirty articles of the Declaration are generally agreed to be the
foundation of modern international human rights law. They have been
elaborated in subsequent international treaties, regional human rights
instruments, national constitutions, etc.

The first article of the Declaration stands as a beacon to inform and
illuminate the thinking of all members of our global civil society:

"All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights.
They are endowed with reason and conscience and should act
towards one another in a spirit of brotherhood."

Come help us celebrate some of the many human rights heroes who
inspire and encourage us in Oklahoma.

program on December 10th,
