Eleanor Roosevelt
Human Rights
printer friendly version
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. Yet they are the world of the individual
person: the neighborhood he lives in; the school or college he
attends; the factory, farm or office where he works. Such are the
places where every man, woman and child seeks equal justice,
equal opportunity, equal dignity without discrimination. Unless these
rights have meaning there, they have little meaning anywhere.
Without concerned citizen action to uphold them close to home, we
shall look in vain for progress in the larger world.
