York, UK's first Human Rights City

On 24 April 2017, York declared itself a Human Rights City.

"York has the ambition to use human rights in decision-making, promote awareness and debate about human rights and ensure all residents' rights are respected.
Each existing human rights city has built on its own particular history when seeking to give local content to the label.
In both the past and present, York has a strong record of activity in the field of social justice."
