Every human being is entitled to human rights.
Universal Human Rights
All people, everywhere, are entitled to a basic set of rights. Knowing about these rights is the first step in achieving them.
The struggle to protect and defend human rights begins with education.
Education
The defense of one's rights begins with education. Because of this, UHRI believes that human rights education is itself a human right.
Technology is a key to spreading human rights information.
Technology
We see technology as the quintessential tool for spreading information about human rights. UHRI leverages web technologies to increase awareness and accessibility to human rights information.
Far too many people in the world are unaware of their rights, particularly in the most vulnerable communities and demographic populations.
Awareness
UHRI works to raise awareness about human rights issues through education and create ways to take action using the Internet and social media.
If human rights awareness is to improve, accessibility to human rights information is key.
Accessibility
Human rights information is available, but not enough people have access to it. The more people are able to access this information, the more empowered they will be in protecting their rights.
