In commemoration of the 75th Anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, Ambassador Thomas-Greenfield will visit the National Center for Civil and Human Rights where she will engage youth to discuss the next generation’s role in promoting democracy, human and civil rights.

Ambassador Thomas-Greenfield will also visit the Jimmy Carter Presidential Library and Museum where she will participate in a moderated discussion on U.S. actions and leadership in securing human and civil rights for populations across the globe. This event will be open to the press.
