Since 1992, The Advocates' Human Rights Education Program has been a local and national leader in bringing the principles of international human rights to the classroom and community. Its dual focus - international and local human rights – is unique and highly valued by consumers worldwide.
The Advocates began providing human rights education to K-12 schools, the community and professionals based on the premise that educating about human rights and responsibilities is the most important way to ensure long-term improvements in respect for human rights in the United States and around the world.
The Advocates established the Discover Human Rights Institute in 2007 to contribute to the building of a U.S.-based human rights movement. Through the Institute, we provide educational resources and tools to help people learn about and apply international human rights standards in their daily lives, their families, their workplaces, and their communities. We train teachers, students, and community educators about international human rights standards and encourage people to “get informed, get involved, and get others interested” in human rights.
