Is the U.S. Ready for Human Rights?

Dear Reader,Wouldn’t it be great if all the nations of the world could agree on a basic blueprint for how people should be treated?

Well, such a proclamation does exist: the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Unfortunately, only 25 percent of Americans know about it. Our new issue of YES! Magazine aims to spread the word.

Is the U.S. Ready for Human Rights? is a look at where we stand. It’s a question that may seem flip, but it’s a serious one. We’re a country with a proud self-image as a defender of rights at home and abroad. But how do we measure up against our national story? How are we doing by the standards of the Universal Declaration?

We invite you to join us as we take a look at the past, present, and future of human rights in the United States. And if you aren’t already a subscriber, try us out with a Free Trial Issue.Doug Pibel
Managing Editor, YES! Magazine

Sometimes a Great Nation
The U.S. has a proud history of advancing human rights—and sometimes forgetting them; it’s a story of cyclical progress and retreat, of debate and struggle. Historian Eric Foner proposes we give humility and respect a try.

Yes. We’re Ready.
Human rights are a powerful tool to break barriers, unite people in common cause, and show us the way to justice within and beyond our borders. Larry Cox of Amnesty International and Dorothy Thomas tell us how activists are defining a new patriotism.

Read Yourself Your Rights
Eleanor Roosevelt hoped it would become “the international Magna Carta.” The Universal Declaration of Human Rights was adopted in 1948 and stands as the first comprehensive, internationally approved statement of rights that belong to all the members of the human family, irrespective of nationality, race, gender or religion. Check your rights, and see our poster of the UDHR, complete with a few facts on how the U.S. measures up.
