The Institute for Economics and Peace (IEP) says more people of the United Nations must respect, protect, and promote human rights, if the world is to build a positive peace that will “promote social progress and better standards of life in larger freedom.”

The Human Rights Pocketbook Project wants to know what’s important to caring citizens in ethical business, civil society, and effective government institutions in the USA. Then using the established scientific process of repetition of good ideas to build common sense, we want to partner with you annually to distribute the human rights pocketbook to your stakeholders. like how to respect, protect, and promote human rights in your sphere of influence.

The reason that youth in the United States are the target audience for the Human Rights Pocketbook Project is because (1) the USA is ranked 121st, in the bottom third, of the 2018 Global Peace Index (2) lack of respect, protection, and promotion of human rights is the primary reason for a lack of peace in the world, and (3) youth are our next generation of leaders.

The Human Rights Pocketbook Project is grateful to the 50 Rotarians who created the United Nations Charter in 1945.

Books N More is proud to assist in distribution of The Human Rights Pocketbook Project, which was conceived by the Empathy Surplus Project, a federation of Caring Citizens’ Congresses, a 501(c)4 tax exempt organization. Visit

About the Universal Declaration of Human Rights 

According to the Rotarian Action Group for Peace,

Rotarians adopted a resolution in 1940, in Havana, Cuba, calling for “freedom, justice, truth, sanctity of the pledged word, and respect for human rights ”that became the framework for the United Nations’ Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

Eleanor Roosevelt was a major contributor to the development of the final draft of the UDHR. She wrote,

“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. Yet they are the world of the individual person; the neighborhood he lives in; the school or college he attends; the factory, farm or office where he works. 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. Without concerted citizen action to uphold them close to home, we shall look in vain for progress in the larger world."
