Adam

Adam E. Stone began doing human rights work in 1996 as a volunteer member of Amnesty International USA’s Freedom Writers Network. In law school, he became interested in Human Rights Education (HRE), and began to research the nexus between HRE and public policy in the United States. In May 2002, Human Rights Quarterly published his article “Human Rights Education and Public Policy in the United States: Mapping the Road Ahead.” Adam has served as the coordinator for the HRE USA Collaborative Action, Policy, & Advocacy Committee (CAPAC, formerly the HRE USA Policy & Advocacy Working Group) since February 2012. He was elected to a 3-year term on the HRE USA Steering Committee by the HRE USA membership in July 2013. Subsequently, he was elected by the Steering Committee to serve on the Executive Committee, where he served as Co-Vice-Chair of HRE USA from 2013-2015. In 2015, he was elected by the Steering Committee to serve on the Executive Committee as Co-Chair of HRE USA. In July 2016, he was re-elected by the membership to a 3-year term on the Steering Committee, and continues in his role as Co-Chair of HRE USA. Adam is also a licensed attorney, a filmmaker, and a novelist. His novel “Xamon Song” (Global Dialogue Press, 2006) has been used by high schools and colleges in the US and Canada as an HRE learning tool. His 2014 short film, “Janet: A Silent Ballet Film” has screened at both mainstream and social justice film festivals across the United States.
