Take a look at what HRE USA has been up to over the past year.
2018 marked the 70th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR), the world’s most preeminent human rights document. The promise of the UDHR, however, has yet to be fulfilled because, as all advocates know, human rights are not a given but rather require a persistent struggle to achieve and sustain.
At HRE USA we believe human rights education is key to ensuring a future in which all people’s rights are respected, protected, and fulfilled.
It is with this passion and purpose that HRE USA continued to build a culture of human rights in 2018. Highlights of our work over the past year include awarding our first Flowers Fund Grantees to support innovation in HRE, coordinating our first human rights poster contest to bring the UDHR to classrooms across the nation, providing outstanding free HRE curricula and lesson plans through our online resource library, and ensuring that HRE is a vital part of any new state education policies and standards.

HRE USA operates on a very lean budget and DOES NOT charge membership fees. The bulk of the work conducted on HRE USA activities and projects is done through the in-kind donation of time and energy given by dedicated members. In 2018 alone, Steering and Advisory Committee members contributed over 1,520 in-kind hours.*
Please consider supporting HRE-USA by making a tax-deductible contribution on our behalf to our fiscal sponsor, the Center for Transformative Action, a 501(c)3 organization.
On behalf of the HRE USA Steering Committee, we would like to thank all our members for a great year and we look forward to continuing to work together to build a strong human rights education community!
