What are Human Rights?

“The belief that all people are born free and endowed with an inalienable right to dignity and equality is enshrined in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights – a foundational document of the UN – and a prerequisite for a just and globalized world.” – Chris Whatley, Executive Director, UNA-USA

I wanted to celebrate Human Rights Day with multimedia so I thought myself and some amazing Iowa United Nations Association interns should take it to the Iowa City streets and ask folks their definition of human rights. It was six degrees out, but we still had takers.

I shot this video with a Canon T2i and 50 mm and edited with iMovie.
