Human rights are the basic standards each of us needs to live with dignity, freedom, equality, justice, and peace. Everyone is entitled to these rights, without discrimination.
Human Rights Education (HRE) is a key part of any strategy to achieve long-term social change that ensures that we are all able to enjoy our human rights equally and without discrimination. HRE promotes values, beliefs, and attitudes that encourage all individuals to uphold their own rights and those of others. It develops an understanding of everyone’s common responsibility to make human rights a reality in each community.Human Rights Educators USA (HRE USA) is a growing network dedicated to building a culture of human rights by providing an innovative forum for HRE practitioners and supporters to learn, network, and exchange professional expertise and better serve our growing HRE community.HRE USA operates on a very lean budget and staff. The bulk of the work conducted in our activities and projects is done through the in-kind donation of time and energy given by our dedicated members. Your tax-deductible donation of any size will help us continue to advocate for and further develop programming that supports human rights education across the United States.
