As we shelter in place join Amnesty International for Friday’s in May as we explore human rights through interactive learning activities designed for grade levels 3rd-8th.

Children have often been told that they are the future, that they will solve the world’s problems, innovate solutions and be “the leaders of tomorrow.” But why does it have to be tomorrow?

Now, more than ever is the time to speak to young people about universal human rights.  We know children are brave, powerful, and inquisitive.  The human rights learning lab will tailor age-appropriate learning through activities that will focus on:

  • Introducing basic concepts focused on teaching “what are human rights?”
  • Observing human rights in your community and today’s world
  • Storytelling
  • What you can do!

The Learning Lab will consist of a total of 4 Friday live learning sessions that will be facilitated by human rights educators who have experienced working with young people!

Dates: Friday, May 8, 15, 29, and June 5, 2020

Time: 12:00pm-1:00pm PT, 2:00 pm-3:00pm CT, 3:00pm-4:00pm ET
