The United Nations Association of San Francisco celebrated the sixty-third anniversary of the establishment of the United Nations and the sixtieth anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights last night at the aptly-named Green Room of the historic War Memorial Veterans Building in the Civic Center. (Or Civic Centre if you’d prefer [Crazy U.N.-English mode: ON].)
The reception honoured Gillian Sorensen, Senior Advisor and National Advocate of the United Nations Foundation, speaking on Human Rights—the Possible Dream.
Kimberly Weichel, President of the United Nations Associations of San Francisco and Marin, looked on last night as Mark Chandler, Director of the Mayor’s Office of International Trade and Commerce (MOITC) addressed the crowd. Click to expand.
It was a lovely affair.

The 60th Anniversary of the United Nations has come and gone, but this sign at the Civic Center / UN Plaza BART station underneath Market Street still calls for renewal.
Who will call for renewal when the 70th Anniversary comes along?
