The Eleanor Roosevelt Conferences: A Virtual Discussion Series Highlighting the Relevance of Eleanor Roosevelt's Legacy in Today's CrisisThe last book Eleanor Roosevelt authored, Tomorrow Is Now, published posthumously in 1962, encapsulates a message that is relevant to all of us today. She was passionate about issues of social justice and human rights, both themes that remain our current challenges at home and around the world. She was a tireless visionary, yet practical about humanity's progress toward more ethical and equitable standards. She famously stated, “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 map of the world.” Sponsored by the Eleanor Roosevelt Valkill Partnership, the Bard Center for Civic Engagement, the Open Society University Network, and the Talloires Network.
