Christopher King, President of United for Human Rights Florida chapter and motivational speaker, who is also a renowned human rights advocate and the grandson of late Blues legend B.B. King, delivered the 1.5 hour-long seminar to the students. He covered 15 of the 30 human rights straight out of the material of Youth for Human Rights International (YHRI, the youth component of United for Human Rights).
YHRI’s website states: “(stet) to teach youth about human rights, specifically the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights, and inspire them to become advocates for tolerance and peace. YHRI has now grown into a global movement, including hundreds of groups, clubs and chapters around the world.”
Their resources include Public Service Announcements on each of the 30 rights, an award-winning Story of Human Rights documentary and anti-bullying music video called “UNITED,” and an Educator’s Guide with lesson plans and activities on human rights. These materials are used by hundreds of educators across Florida, and thousands more around the world. All the resources are provided free of charge for educators and like-minded individuals.
Christopher King, along with other dedicated United for Human Rights Florida chapter volunteers, are trained on how to deliver seminars on all 30 articles of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
