What happens when people don't know their human rights?

Violence: Bullying 
  • More than 50% of high schoolers have been bullied or have bullied, according to a 2010 study in Los Angeles.1
  • Bullying is now an epidemic that causes 160,000 children a day to stay home from school because they are afraid of being bullied. 2   
  • Bullying culminated in at least 14 suicides in the US last year.
  • Every 7 minutes a child is bullied. Adult intervention - 4%. Peer intervention - 11%. No intervention - 85%.3
   Youth and adults who are aware of their human rights  
are more able to report and take effective measures  
to eradicate bullying.

"We have a duty to other people, and we should protect their rights and freedoms."

"Where, after all, do Universal Rights begin?

In small places, close to home - so close and so small that they cannot be seen on any maps of the world.  Yet they are the world of the individual person, farm or office where he works.
Such are the places where every man, woman, and child seeks justice, equal opportunity, equal dignity without discrimination.

Unless these rights have meaning there,
they have little meaning anywhere."
~ Mrs. Eleanor Roosevelt
