The Prince William County Human Rights Commission will celebrate Universal Human Rights Day on Saturday, Jan. 14, 2023, at 10:00 a.m. at the McCoart Administration Building, 1 County Complex Court, Woodbridge.

This year’s theme is “Dignity, Freedom and Justice for All,” chosen to remind everyone of the initial mission of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR), as human rights have been under attack in recent years.

The day will include light refreshments and the annual presentation of the Human Rights Awards given to members of the community who provide unique contributions to human and civil rights. The 2022 winners are Reverend Cozy Bailey, Darryl Overton, the National Coalition of 100 Black Woman, Inc. (in collaboration with Apple Federal Credit Union, John D Jenkins Elementary School and the SPARK Foundation), Tenants and Workers United and Woodbridge Alumni Chapter of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Inc.

The community is invited to share in this important celebration. The event is free and open to the public. Please direct questions to the Human Rights Office at pwhrc@pwcgov.org or 703-792-4680.
