Human Rights Toolkits

Most Americans have heard of human rights abuses occurring in other countries around the world, but many do not realize that human rights are being violated in the U.S. as well.  In an effort to increase awareness of human rights in the U.S., The Advocates for Human Rights has created a series of toolkits that examine important human rights issues and that offer tools to help Americans advocate for positive social change.  

 Learn!  Use our fact sheets to learn about human rights in the U.S. and then test your knowledge with our quizzes.

Act!       Use the resources and ideas in our Take Action guides to start working to improve human rights in the U.S.

Teach!  Use the presentations and lesson plans to educate your school or community about human rights in the U.S.
