About the UNA-NCA Human Rights Committee
:
The Human Rights Committee organizes events to promote the work of the UN and advocate for strong human rights protections, specifically those outlined in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Volunteers on the committee strive to educate, engage, and lead the community in creating meaningful conversations about these issues and to inspire action. Each December, the committee hosts an annual Awards reception to commemorate Human Rights Day. This celebration of human rights champions recognizes the outstanding contributions of individuals and organizations to the human rights field. Some other ways committee members advocate for these issues is by lobbying members of congress, writing blogs, and signing-on to coalition letters. Through these tactics, the Human Rights Committee is able to shine a spotlight on challenging topics that can’t be ignored.
