We celebrate International Human Rights Day on December 10th. This is to commemorate the United Nations National Assembly adoption of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights in 1948.
“Where, after all, do universal human rights begin? In small places, close to home – so close and so small that they cannot be seen on any maps of the world…Unless these rights have meaning there. They have little meaning anywhere. Without concerted citizen action to uphold them close to home, we shall look in vain for progress in the larger world.” – Eleanor Roosevelt
