In early December 2017, the Arroyo Rite of Passage class participants began the process of identifying their Community Action Project. The first class discussion centered on selecting the three UDHR Articles they associated most closely with community issues that concerned them.
The World As It Could Be Human Rights Education Program (TWAICB) is an outgrowth of a series of successful initiatives carried out since 2006 to inspire people of all ages to take actions, large and small, that lead to equality, justice and dignity for all. These initiatives use the creative arts to deepen learning about the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR); they give participating youth the voice to teach their peers and adults about the importance of the UDHR principles.
As part of our efforts to bring attention to the UHDR and its continuing relevance, we have created, and continue to develop Resources that aim to help people take effective action in their most immediate circles in connection with one or more of the UDHR Articles.
