Upstanders for human rights

“Understanding that each one of us can make a difference ….” Those words have a nice ring to them, don’t they? Sara Skvirsky, of the educational organization Facing History and Ourselves, wrote to me today to introduce their Web site “Be the Change:Upstanders for Human Rights.” The site has been designed for middle and high school students and their teachers, and features profiles of five people who have certainly made a difference in the world. It’s a great, interactive site that provides plenty of food for thought including great lesson plans. Check it out. Be inspired. And don’t leave the site without investigating the “What Can I Do?” section, which provides some great guidance and suggestions on choosing the way you’ll participate.
