United for Human Rights is a program which brings human rights to life through audio-visual aids for students anywhere.
Freedom doesn’t have to be a nebulous concept, and thanks to the materials provided by United for Human Rights, it can be a solid reality for all. The United for Human Rights program is designed to raise awareness and respect for human rights by educating the population and simultaneously persuading governments to uphold the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
In Tennessee, the campaign is reaching out directly to help students understand their basic rights. “Materials are free of charge to educators,” says Rev. Brian Fesler, who coordinates the program locally. “We want to reach everyone – every man, woman and child deserves to know their basic rights and we are working to achieve this.”
Fesler is encouraging educators, government workers and others to visit the website humanrights.com to get free materials so they can start passing on this information.
The United for Human Rights program includes booklets on What Are Human Rights? and the Story of Human Rights, the Story of Human Rights short film and the 30 public service announcements which illustrate each of the points to the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Further, the complete education package contains all of these things plus a complete curriculum that educators can use in classrooms.
The humanrights.com website is an interactive learning center complete with information including all videos and downloadable materials. Lastly, a virtual education program is available as an app downloadable for iPhones and iPads.
“These materials are user friendly and available to anyone,” said Fesler. For more information about United for Human Rights, visit humanrights.com.
