"Where, after all, do the 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 individual person, the neighborhood he lives in; the schools or collages he attend; the factory, farm, or office where he works. Such are the places where every man, woman, child seeks equal justice, equal opportunity, equal dignity without discrimination. 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-1949
