Regional Chapters

HRE USA’s regional chapters coordinate human rights education activities and communicate with members and organizational partners in their areas. Regional Representatives are very involved in HRE advocacy, serve on HRE USA committees as well as on the boards for local and national organizations working in the area of human rights.

To get involved locally, contact the representative nearest you with your questions, concerns, and information to share about your human rights education activities.
