Join us in celebrating the 70th Anniversary of the Declaration of Human Rights

Wednesday, 12 June 2019

We're very proud to be a named advocate of Human Rights week 2019, which runs from 24 - 28 June. This special anniversary will mark 70 years since the Declaration of Human Rights, so we'll be getting involved in promoting and celebrating human rights for all. We're encouraging all of our members, followers and supporters to join us in raising awareness of human rights, and we're looking for help to involve the dyslexic community in this meaningful celebration.
