Where, after all, do human rights begin?
In small places, close to home—so small that they cannot be seen on any map of the world.
Yet they are the world of the individual person: the neighborhood…the school or college...the factory, farm or office. Such are the places where every man, woman, and child seeks equal justice, equal opportunity, equal dignity without discrimination. Unless these rights have meaning there, they have little meaning anywhere.
