Tune in to the live stream through the following platforms as we reflect on what we have done to address Human Rights as we navigate our way through COVID-19:

This year’s International Human Rights Day theme relates to the COVID-19 pandemic and focuses on the need to build back better by ensuring Human Rights are central to recovery efforts. We will reach our common global goals only if we are able to create equal opportunities for all, address the failures exposed and exploited by COVID-19, and apply human rights standards to tackle entrenched, systematic, and intergenerational inequalities, exclusion and discrimination.
10 December is an opportunity to reaffirm the importance of human rights in re-building the world we want, the need for global solidarity as well as our interconnectedness and shared humanity. Under UN Human Rights’ generic call to action “Stand Up for Human rights” and South Africa’s Breaking down barriers to address Human Rights, Show Me Your Number together with the 25 Implementing Partner Organisations and other partners it works with on implementing the Stigma & Discrimination will be reflecting on our journey in 2020 as we prepare to up the game in 2021. I am HUMAN because we all are HUMAN and we need to ensure that our actions contribute towards breaking the barriers the infringe on the HUMAN RIGHTS of others.
