UN Declaration of Human Rights

Each year since the 50th anniversary of the passage of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights by the United Nations in 1998 Alliance for Democracy-Rochester has organized a candlelight vigil reading of the Declaration; a potluck super; & a panel discussion highlighting one or more of the principles enshrined in that document.


In 2001 the Earth Charter Document was added to the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the US Constitution & the Bill of Rights as fundamental documents in the eyes of AfD-R.


This event serves as an annual reminder & communal public expression of the basic ideas that unite people all across the globe. Many of the problems that we face here in Rochester remain unsolved even after more than 50 years of so-called progress .
