Human Rights Education – An Urgent Priority for the 21st Century
November 5, 2005
Released at the celebration of the 21st anniversary of the International Association of Scientologists in the United Kingdom, Youth for Human Rights International has created a human rights education handbook for teachers.
"The Universal Declaration of Human Rights is based on the principle that the inherent dignity and of the equal and inalienable rights of all members of the human family is the foundation of freedom, justice and peace in the world," said Leisa Goodman, Human Rights Director of the Church of Scientology International, "yet a glance at the world headlines show human rights violations to be the basis of most of the serious situations confronting us in the 21st Century."
The Church decided to sponsor this program because of the conviction that we can make human rights a reality within a generation by implementing human rights education throughout the world.
This handbook includes teacher guides, lesson plans and audiovisual presentations that make human rights understandable to young people. Each kit contains copies of the UNITED music video, and printable versions of the booklet What are Human Rights? in 21 languages.
To order copies of this handbook e-mail Youth for Human Rights International at YouthHumanRights@aol.com or contact the Human Rights Director of the Church of Scientology International at firstname.lastname@example.org.
