For Educators

The Advocates for Human Rights is at the forefront of developing educational tools that help people learn about and apply international human rights standards in their families, schools, workplaces, and communities. We believe that education is one of the best ways to ensure long-term improvements in respect for human rights everywhere. Our free curricula, lesson plans, educator resources, and other educational materials explore a variety of human rights issues in the United States and around the world.
