Youth for Human Rights - Connecticut
Youth for Human Rights International (YHRI) is an independent non-profit corporation headquartered in Los Angeles, with the purpose to educate people in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights so they become valuable advocates for tolerance and peace.
YHRI holds events and produces instructional tools to raise human rights awareness such as the award-winning music video UNITED – a street-savvy, multi-ethnic, five-minute film in 15 languages – conveying the power of human rights awareness.
Most recently, YHRI released a series of 30 audiovisual public service announcements, one for each article of the United Nations' Universal Declaration of Human Rights. The first of these messages, released in late 2005, have been screened to more than 130 million people.
