Human Rights Month 2022

Human Rights Month banner.

South Africa commemorates Human Rights Month in March. 

Human Rights Day can be traced back to the tumultuous events in Sharpeville, on 21 March 1960. On that day, 69 people died and 180 were wounded when police fired on a peaceful crowd that had gathered in protest against the Pass laws.

‘The theme for this year's Human Rights Month is, 'The Year of Unity and Renewal: Protecting and Preserving our Human Rights Gains’,

This month’s commemorations will also be used to assess the progress of the nation’s constitutional democratic project.
