Now is a great time to start planning an activity in your community to commemorate Human Rights Day, which is celebrated around the world on December 10 (the day that the UN ratified the Universal Declaration of Human Rights in 1948). Organize a film screening, volunteer, buy a socially responsible gift for a loved one, or find a personal way to celebrate humanity. Be a human rights champion.

      Hey, Anna. Here are some small suggestions from a blog I posted, "Ten Ways to Become a Human Rights Champion:"

      December 10th is the anniversary of the signing of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. It is a great day to commemorate the human rights movement. Many events are scheduled by human rights advocates on this day. Consider attending one or, even better, organize one -- such as a movie screening, guest speaker, shopping spree at your neighborhood socially responsible vendor (I really like fair trade retailer Ten Thousand Villages) or anything that gets you into the human rights spirit.

      You may also check out a local initiative in my neck of the woods these days (Atlanta, GA), that pulled together a coalition of community-based groups to commemorate December 10. I believe that they are just getting started as well but maybe you can bounce ideas off of each other. Personally, I am planning (at minimum) to make a donation to a human rights group and send a Human Rights Day e-card to my friends. Hopefully, I can find an e-card that someone with real design skills has already made, before I try to give it a go.

      Please feel free to share whatever you come up with.

      With less than two months to go, does anyone have any good ideas for things that an individual or small group of people can do to celebrate and commemorate Human Rights Day?
