World Consumer Rights Day History

World Consumer Rights Day seeks to raise global awareness about consumer rights and needs. This day demands that the rights of all consumers are respected and protected. This day aims to protest against market abuses and social injustices.

World Consumer Rights Day was established in 1983. It was inspired by U.S President John F. Kennedy. In 1962, President Kennedy formally addressed the issue of consumer rights in a special message to the U.S Congress. Since then, a consumer movement has mobilized action toward issues and campaigns. One such campaign is World Consumers Rights day which is observed annually on March 15th.
