HUMAN RIGHTS DAY, DECEMBER 10

By: Gabriela Yareliz

Today, we are celebrating Human Rights Day. It’s a cause worth fighting for. I know Humanitarian Day is August 19, but I want to honor humanitarians and missionaries on this day, too. They are, day-by-day, fighting for people’s basic needs all over the world; they spread hope, joy and love.

There is still much to be done.

As many of you know, I am a law student finishing up her degree, as we speak. The people below are some of the incredible lives that have inspired my journey as a human rights advocate. The injustices are real. The fight is real. The hope is real. The people are real. The love is real.
