(KSL News) Sixty years ago on this day, the United Nations endorsed its Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Salt Lake City Mayor Ralph Becker celebrated the anniversary by unveiling a large Declaration of Human Rights placard at the City and County Building.

Becker says the original document set the standards for human rights throughout the world. "This is a great acknowledgment today of the commitment we have in Salt Lake City to justice and equality for all populations in every part of the community," Becker said.

Citizens and visitors are welcome to add their names to the proclamation any time during this month.
