The Universal Declaration of Human Rights was established in 1948, in the aftermath of world-wide depression and war.

It asserted people’s civil rights (freedom of speech, freedom from arbitrary detention, freedom from discrimination, etc.)

And it also asserted people’s rights to the necessities of life (housing, healthcare, employment, education, etc.)

In these times of indefinite detention, targeted assassinations, racial profil-ing, and police murders, coupled with obscene wealth alongside growing poverty, and dismantling of the safety net, the Universal Declaration is more relevant than ever.
