Human Rights Friendly Schools

HRE USA works with Amnesty International USA to bring the “Becoming a Human Rights Friendly School” program to schools and school districts in the United States. This program provides guidelines and resources to help school personnel, students, parents/guardians and community members develop a school culture and related programs that support the implementation of human rights education.

Right now the Dorothy Cotton Institute is leading a project to bring the process to four schools in the Ithaca, New York, area which will serve as a pilot for other schools and districts to use.
