The Eleanor Roosevelt Award for Human Rights was established in 1998 by the President of the United States Bill Clinton, honoring outstanding American promoters of rights in the United States.
The award was first awarded on the 50th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, honoring Eleanor Roosevelt's role as the "driving force" in the development of the UN's Universal Declaration of Human Rights. The award was presented from 1998 to the end of the Clinton Administration in 2001.
In 2010, Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton revived the Eleanor Roosevelt Award for Human Rights and presented the award on behalf of President Obama. "The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams."
-Eleanor Roosevelt "A good leader inspires people to have confidence in the leader,
a great leader inspires people to have confidence in themselves."
-Eleanor Roosevelt "You can often change your circumstances by changing your attitude."
-Eleanor Roosevelt "Someone once asked me what I regarded as the three most important requirements for happiness. My answer was: A feeling that you have been honest with yourself and those around you; a feeling that you have done the best you could both in your personal life and in your work; and the ability to love others."
-Eleanor Roosevelt "Basically we could not have peace, or an atmosphere in which peace could grow, unless we recognized the rights of individual human beings... their importance, their dignity... and agreed that was the basic thing that had to be accepted throughout the world."
-Eleanor Roosevelt "Pit race against race, religion against religion, prejudice against prejudice. Divide and conquer! We must not let that happen here."
