Description

As people, we are all born with certain rights, called human rights, that are not given to us by laws. This book explains that no matter where we live in the world or under what government, our human rights protect our claim to live with freedom, equality, justice, and peace. Case studies discuss what happens when human rights are blocked and our liberty—the right to live the way we want to—is taken away. An activity encourages further discussion.
