UDHR

Ask your representative to become an original cosponsor of House and Senate resolutions in honor of the 71st anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.


As you may know, December 10 marks the 71st anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR).

Championed by Eleanor Roosevelt following the atrocities of World War II, the UDHR is the cornerstone of the international human rights system and has been the catalyst for expanding human rights protection for countless people across the globe.

The rights enshrined in the UDHR are a reflection of our country’s guiding morals, upholding the same basic principles of liberty and freedom enshrined within the Constitution and Bill of Rights.

In recognition of this important occasion, Rep. Alan Lowenthal and Sen. Chris Coons recently introduced resolutions commemorating the document.

As your constituent and a strong supporter of the UDHR and the United Nations, I urge you to become an original cosponsor of this resolution.Your co-sponsorship will send a strong signal about the U.S.’s ongoing commitment to justice, equality, and the rule of law—no matter the time, place, or occasion.

To cosponsor the House resolution, please contact Ngoc Nguyen in the office of Rep. Alan Lowenthal. She can be reached at 202-225-7924 or ngoc.nguyen@mail.house.gov.

To cosponsor the Senate resolution, please contact Emma Borden in the office of Sen. Chris Coons. She can be reached at 202-224-5042 or emma_borden@coons.senate.gov.

Thank you for your time and consideration.
