Cultural Rights DOCUMENTS

Democracy cannot exist without respect for the identity and worth of cultures and peoples."

Rigoberta Menchú Tum, Nobel Peace Prize Winner

 

Consciously or unconsciously, culture is one of the primary sources of every human being’s self-definition and sense of group belonging, and everyone has the right to the enjoyment of his or her culture in conditions of equality, human dignity, and non-discrimination. Although human rights establish principles that apply to every human being without any distinction, it must be approached in a way that is meaningful and relevant in diverse cultural contexts.

HRE USA is a project of The Center for Transformative Action

The core values of HRE USA and its partner organizations include transparency and critical thinking skills. We believe that human rights--and human rights education--belong to everyone, and that the full realization of human rights means that access to human rights education materials must never be conditioned upon the subscription to any particular religious faith, ideology, political affiliation, or membership in any particular organization and that any organizational connections should be openly acknowledged.
