December 10, 2018 – “The Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR), a document adopted by the United Nations General Assembly and championed here at home by Eleanor Roosevelt, turns 70 years old today. The UDHR contains a list of 30 articles which serve as a blueprint to the world on the basic rights all individuals who occupy this earth should be granted. When looking at this declaration seven decades later, it is evident that more work must be done. As Americans, we enjoy a certain number of these freedoms, but the same cannot be said for all nations – developed and undeveloped. 70 years later, it is important to remember a time when the world was reeling from war and searching for a path forward. In today’s tumultuous times, we must remember that the path forward lies through the guaranteeing of freedoms to all peoples.”
