Who we are

The Kingston for Human Rights committee was formed in 2000 with the sole purpose of raising public awareness of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

Each year, on or close to the 10th December - the anniversary of the declaration - we hold a meeting with prominent speakers on a topic from the declaration.

We have been very fortunate to have been supported by the Kingston Council and the local members of Parliament each year.
