In 2017, HRE USA continued its work to advance human rights education in the United States. Check out what we’ve been up to over the past year!Our accomplishments include advancing the inclusion of HRE in national social studies standards; contributing to the United Nations Universal Periodic Review with regard to the current status of HRE in US schools; expanding our free online HRE library, supporting schools that are part of our Human Rights Friendly Schools project; and holding multiple chapter-led workshops throughout the United States.
Thank you to our members, supporters, partners, and volunteers for helping us to achieve these goals and for the countless ways you help to promote human dignity, justice, and peace through human rights education.
While we’re proud of these achievements, as we look forward to the 70th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, we know we’ve got a lot more work to do and we need you to help reaffirm the enduring human rights principles and standards the UDHR has helped establish. Please join us in our efforts by becoming an individual or institutional member of HRE USA today. Together, we can create a culture of respect for human rights among our fellow Americans – a legacy that will resonate both here at home, and abroad.
