VETERANS’ DAY

In honor of all veterans, the offices of the ACLU are closed today.

We, the peoples of the United Nations, determined to save succeeding generations from the scourge of war, which twice in our lifetime has brought untold sorrow to mankind, and to reaffirm faith in fundamental human rights, in the dignity and worth of the human person, in the equal rights of men and women and of nations large and small…[F]or these ends to practice tolerance and live together in peace with one another as good neighbors…Have resolved to combine these efforts to accomplish our aims.
Charter of the United Nations, Preamble, June 1945
