HUMAN RIGHTS ARE RIGHT IN YOUR HANDS

Through the untiring efforts of Eleanor Roosevelt, the General Assembly of the United Nations on December 10, 1948 adopted the proclaimed Universal Declaration of Human Rights which states in clear and simple terms the rights which belong equally to every person. These rights belong to you. They are your rights.

An excerpt from Mrs. Roosevelt asks- "Where, after all do universal human rights begin? In small places, close to home...the world of the individual person...at these places every man, woman, and child seeks equal justice, equal opportunity, equal dignity without discrimination..." she leaves the destiny of human rights in the hands of all citizens in all of the world communities.

IN OUR HANDS, YOU AND ME.
