Defenders of Human Rights and Democracy in Your Community 

Defenders of Human Rights and Democracy in Your Community provides classroom teachers with tools for connecting their students with both historic and contemporary figures who have fought for civil rights, democracy, and racial justice. 

As a result, students will more easily build the bridge between the past and what is currently going on in their communities today.  The project makes civic activism more of students’ own reality today and less removed from history.  The project has teachers working with students to highlight selected historical civil rights and democracy activists, interview community defenders, and then, using project-based learning templates, create songs, videos, plays, posters, podcasts, and other art works.
