Join HRE USA, the nation’s network of human rights educators, as we celebrate Human Rights Day and commemorate the ratification of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights by the United Nations on Dec 10, 1948.
The event will feature keynote speaker, Loretta Ross, a nationally-recognized women’s rights and human rights leader whose work emphasizes the intersectionality of social justice issues and how this transforms social change.
HRE USA will also honor the 2020 Edward O’Brien Human Rights Education Award winners, Pam Bruns of Human Rights Watch Student Task Force and the ACT Center for Disability Leadership.
We are also excited to include youth voices from around the world speaking on the significance of the UDHR through multimedia and poetry, introduce you to HRE USA’s 2020 Flowers Fund grantees, and announce the new Edmonds Summer Fellowship.
We hope you’re able to join us!
This event is hosted by Human Rights Educators USA (HRE USA), a project of the Center for Transformative Action, with special thanks to the Puffin Foundation for their continued support. For further questions, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
