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.” – Eleanor Roosevelt

Join us as we commemorate Human Rights Day with the series finale of Where Human Rights Begin: True Storytelling from Small Places, Close to Home. Through personal storytelling performances and facilitated dialogue, we will explore the immigrant experience through the lens of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
