Holidays are celebrated differently based on religion, culture, geography and countless other factors. But there is one holiday celebrated worldwide that everyone can agree on. Human Rights Day is celebrated each year on December 10. Its message is so universal that the United Nations Prize in the Field of Human Rights and the Nobel Peace Prize are both awarded on that day.
Specific themes may be championed, but it’s a day for the whole world to fight for human rights. The theme for 2010 is human rights defenders who act to end discrimination. Those who put themselves at risk in the face of discrimination will be recognized on this day.
Take a moment this December 10, and honor someone you know who may be fighting to put an end to discrimination. These are often unsung heroes, who don’t ask for, but deserve some recognition. Tell their story and share it with your subscribers using a Benchmark Human Rights Day email template. Tell them to pay it forward. Perhaps it will inspire others to stop discrimination.
