Partners for Dignity & Rights Director Cathy Albisa to Receive Human Rights Award


Partners for Dignity & Rights director Cathy Albisa received a human rights award from the Rights and Democracy Institute.

The Rights & Democracy Institute annual Human Rights Awards in New Hampshire and Vermont will honor local leaders and groups in those states, while celebrating the 71st Anniversary of the adoption of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

December 10th marks the 71st Anniversary since the United Nations adopted the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

That is why we’ve chosen this time of year to both recognize the progress we’ve made and recognize the work ahead of us to live up to the promise of this important declaration.
