The Town of West Hartford and the West Hartford Human Rights Commission will be hosting a celebration of the 70th anniversary of the signing of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights on Monday, Dec. 3, from 6-8 p.m. in the Town Hall auditorium, 50 South Main St..

The event will consist of a public reading of the 30 articles of the UDHR, interspersed with music, poetry, and speakers. West Hartford-based organizations will also be on hand to share information about their human rights work and opportunities for volunteering. Free and open to the public.

The UDHR is the milestone document in the modern history of human rights. Drafted by a committee representing diverse cultures, religions, and philosophies around the world, and co-chaired by Eleanor Roosevelt, it was adopted by the United Nations General Assembly on Dec. 10, 1948. It proclaims a comprehensive list of civil, political, social, cultural, and economic rights that all people possess simply by virtue of being human.

Everyone is invited. Please bring a non-perishable food item for the West Hartford Food Pantry to benefit families in need.
