Human Rights Education (HRE)
UHRI is working at the highest levels with school districts, including LAUSD, the second largest district in the country, to implement comprehensive HRE in all grades. This effort comprises curating well-established human rights curriculum and lesson plans, engaging students and their families around human rights activities and working towards the creation of a state-approved Human Rights elective. Human rights education will empower even the youngest students, helping them learn to defend their rights and advocate on behalf of others.
The cornerstone of UHRI's HRE program is the HRE Web Portal, a database-driven web site containing the largest online collection of human rights educational curriculum, professional development materials and links to service learning opportunities.
