Over the last eight years, the American Federation of Teachers has partnered with RFK Human Rights on important classroom-centered human rights programs that engage educators across the United States.
The two organizations are now combining their synergies into a project called “Defenders of Human Rights and Democracy in your Community.”
These lessons were written by teachers for teachers. They were designed to “meet the moment” to help students learn from the civil rights struggles of the past and then become more engaged with community activism of today.
