A brief statement regarding human rights: 

I have been obsessed with people’s rights and the building of a just society since the Civil Rights Movement of the 1950s and 1960s, the Anti-War (Vietnam) Movement of the 1960s and 1970s, and all the ensuing people’s rights struggles of our times. I consider this a lifelong pursuit and that there is no more important work for a person to do.
