Bringing Human Rights Home: Linking Individual Dignity with Mutual Destiny. A Report of Program Activities, 1996-2000.
National Center for Human Rights Education, Atlanta, GA.
With the aim of honoring the spirit of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., by working to make his "human rights revolution" a reality, this report considers efforts to build a human rights society in the United States. The report celebrates the Center for Human Rights Education's (CHRE's) growth and accomplishments and documents the Center's work to ensure that both the language and the practice of human rights thinking become an essential part of U.S. social justice movements. The report also seeks to embody the fundamental belief that individuals must teach each other about human rights since it is not a part of the formal educational system. The first half of the report covers methods of human rights education and how this human rights framework is applied to issues of injustice in the U.S. The second half of the report highlights CHRE's programs and services. Also included is a pull-out poster that connects human rights to the social justice movements that have given rise to these principles. The report is divided into the following sections: "Unity of Vision and Purpose"; "What Are Human Rights?"; "Human Rights in the United States"; "An American History of Human Rights Movements"; "Uniting Philosophy and Strategy"; "CHRE Programs"; and "CHRE Financial History."
