Join us at the Museum of Contemporary Art for a reception with striking views over the harbour, as we recognise the importance of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and our commitment to protect and defend human rights worldwide.
Human Rights Watch observes Human Rights Day each year, sending a message of hope by lighting in blue the Empire State Building in New York and the CN Tower in Toronto. This year Australia will join this global observation for the first time by lighting the Sydney Opera House blue.
