International Human Rights Day, December 10
Human rights are “commonly understood as inalienable fundamental rights to which a person is inherently entitled simply because she or he is a human being.” Human rights are thus conceived as universal (applicable everywhere) and egalitarian (the same for everyone).

While the nation’s AAPI population grew at a rate of 46 percent between 2000 and 2010, faster than any racial group, the Floridian AAPI community grew at a rate of 72 percent to over half of a million people. AAPI voters have also grown 28% to 193,821 from 151,016 in 2008. The Floridian AAPI vote is on track to become the margin of victory in this year’s election. According to a recent report by Lake Research Partners, nearly 90 percent of AAPIs in Florida are planning to vote. This could mean a record turnout for the AAPI community in this year’s elections.
