It’s International Human Rights Day today. Usually we try to have some kind of learning event on this date because our organization is focused on the human right to equitable access to education.
However, we just finished our 8 Days Of Action For Access and our volunteer team is pretty spent 🙂
So instead, we’re sharing the highlights from these days of action, but first, some information about human rights from the United Nations:
Know your rights and help spread the word:
- Read and share the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Find it here in more than 500 languages.
- Watch a video recording of an article of the Declaration in your native language.
- Read a simplified version [PDF ] or the illustrated booklet of the Declaration.
- Watch the Declaration in sign languages.
Learn about the United Nations Sustainable Development Goal #4, to Ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all:
The 8 Days of Action for Access was an incredible grassroots effort, supported by many organizations:
BC People First, BC Complex Kids Society, ACT Autism Community Training, Autism BC, Down Syndrome BC, GIRLS CLUB, Family Support Institute, Inclusion BC, BC Teacher’s Federation and Dyslexia BC
Here are just a couple of photos from the Day 8 rally, we’ll add more as we get permission:
And here’s the video of that rally.
We’ll be uploading all of the Days of Action videos to our YouTube channel within the next few weeks! It helps if you like and subscribe!
