Dallas Morning News: One easy thing you can do to help refugees in North Texas

Sunday marks the 69th annual International Human Rights Day, commemorating the adoption of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights by the United Nations General Assembly in 1948. The historic document, which articulated the unalienable rights of all regardless of race, gender, religion or creed, remains the foundational international treaty in the field of human rights.

As a college student majoring in diplomacy and world affairs, I experienced first-hand why helping those who have suffered from human rights abuses is so important. During an internship with Refugee Services of Texas, I assisted recently refugees to Dallas, men and women who had managed to escape abuse and injustice in various places around the globe.
