Dear friends of the DHR,
The year 2020 has started well for the Universal Declaration of Human Rights: it has been signed by a new city, a new association and a new personality!
This new support is encouraging for the DHR which, we hope, will take off in 2020 and will manage to put the values it defends at the heart of the world’s concerns.
France Libertés – The Danielle Mitterrand Foundation has officialized its support to the DHR !
On January 30, 2020, Corinne Lepage, President of the DHR’s Friends Association, went to the premises of France Libertés to attend the signing of the DHR by Gilbert Mitterrand, its President. The Friends of the DHR are happy to count France Libertés among its signatories and supporters. The support of this foundation is essential to highlight the values defended by the DHR for the preservation of the common goods of Humanity.
Hindou OUMAROU IBRAHIM Signed the DHR !
The DHR’s Friends are very proud to count among the signatories of the DHR, since January, Hindou Oumarou Ibrahim, an environmental activist and feminist from Chad, a key figure in the struggle for the emancipation of women and the preservation of the planet. The values she has been defending for more than twenty years, such as the environment and women’s rights, are fully in line with the approach of the DHR. Her approach to society, as more inclusive and more respectful of the poorest countries, is innovative and essential to respond to climate issues while promoting the improvement of living conditions in the most fragile countries.
