2020 Human Rights Awards


Each year, UNA-NCA commemorates the United Nations' Universal Declaration of Human Rights with a celebratory event. 

In honor of the 75th anniversary of the United Nations and the 72nd anniversary of the adoption of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, UNA-NCA will recognize individuals and organizations working to improve human rights in their communities and around the world.


This year, we are excited to partner with Bathsheba Smithen and Cage Free Voices for a spoken word performance with musical accompaniment during the event!  You can learn more about their work here.
