Join Bonner County Human Rights Task Force and the Foundation for Human Rights Action and Advocacy (FHRAA) as they celebrate freedom, equality, fairness and rule of law by commemorating the 70th year of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR).
This collaborative document is considered a milestone in the work of human rights, as it was drafted and supported by representatives from around the globe declaring all people are entitled to inalienable rights as human beings. The UN General Assembly approved final passage of the UDHR on Dec. 10, 1948.
Three Sandpoint High School students from the Model UN class will present a brief history and development of the UDHR.
Following the students’ presentation, our featured speaker, Carla Peperzak, will talk about her experiences in the Dutch Resistance during World War II, a time when many were being persecuted. Mrs. Peperzak gives us an opportunity to look at the past and move forward in hope and respect for one another.
The event will take place on Sunday, Dec. 10, at Sandpoint High School auditorium, from 11:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m.
Come be a part of this living history event while supporting Bonner County students.
