Your Human Rights

As stated in the Preamble of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, “Recognition of the inherent dignity and of the equal and inalienable rights of all members of the human family is the foundation of freedom, justice and peace in the world.” As such, it is the mission of the Salt Lake City Human Rights Commission to empower, protect, and educate people about their rights, not only as residents of a community, but as members of the diverse “human family.”
