Explain it Like I’m 5: Human Rights

What are our basic human rights?  How do we decide?  Let’s take a very basic, simple look at human rights and the UN Human Rights Declaration.

In 1948, The United Nations created a document which outlined which rights should be afforded to all humans.  70 years later, have we come as far as we should?  These resources explore those rights and their evolution over time.

This infographic breaks down the basics of those rights in a simple format.  This is a great resource to share with kids, or to post on social media.  If you are looking for more resources for kids, be sure to check out The UN’s Declaration of Human Rights – Illustrated for Kids.
