Common Concern (Social Justice)
“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

Did you know that Human Rights Day is observed every year on December 10th, the anniversary of the United Nations General Assembly adopting the Declaration? This year marks the 70th Anniversary. These basic rights are based on shared values like dignity, fairness, equality, respect and independence. Human rights are the basic rights and freedoms that belong to every person in the world. They apply irrespective of where you are from, what you believe or how you choose to live your life. Human rights are relevant to all of us, not just those who face repression or mistreatment. They protect you
