CHAPTER MEETING THANK YOU!
December Diversity Message
December is a month of celebrations. Most of the world's religions and cultures have their traditional festivities as a calendar year (that is if you use Gregorian or Julian calendars) comes to its end. Here are just a few well known, well loved, and widely celebrated holidays of the Holiday Season (source - Diversity Best Practices):
With all these celebrations going on we want to explicitly acknowledge
In the words of Eleanor Roosevelt, the first Chairperson of the Commission on Human Rights who played an instrumental role in drafting the Universal Declaration of Human Rights: "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. [...] 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."
