Universal Rights – 3 Ways To Start The Conversation


Human Rights Day

In her 1958 speech, Eleanor Roosevelt asked the question, "Where after all do human rights begin?"

We still have not defined a one-size-fits-all answer to this question almost 60 years later.

Here are 3 ways to start the conversation.

1-Introduce Middle-Schooled kids to the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.  Help them to know what they are and also how to interpret them for themselves.  This is the perfect age group.  What they learn now lasts a lifetime.

2-Create art that embodies the concept of human rights. Art can transcend a language barrier.  A powerful image can motivate people to make a difference.

3- Use your personal experiences to find the spark that propels you into action.
