For more than 70 years, the United Nations has been recognizing Universal Human Rights Month in December. The Universal Declaration of Human Rights is proclamation of the 30 undeniable rights according to the United Nations.

Recognizing and respecting universal human rights begins in our
communities, through our interactions with others each and every day.

"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."

-Eleanor Roosevelt
