Speak Truth To Power is a curriculum through the Robert F. Kennedy Center for Human Rights dedicated to promoting the study and practice of human rights in classrooms across the world. Through the exploration of human rights defenders from a variety of countries, students come face to face with injustice and begin the process of organizing action within their communities. It is our hope that these students then become ripples of hope in living out the legacy of Robert Kennedy in his mission for peace.

During this one day training, teachers will be provided an opportunity to:

  • Deepen their understanding of Human Rights Education pedagogy

  • Actively engage in learning about the Universal Declaration of Human Rights

  • Plan school frameworks, units, and/or lessons surrounding the STTP curriculum

  • Align Human Rights Education to state standards

  • Collaborate and network with area educators

This training will be held on April 12th at Kennedy King Park Center, located in Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Park at 601 E. 17th St. in Indianapolis. The day will begin at 9:00 am and will end by 5:00pm. Stipends are available for both the participants and their school to cover the substitute teacher expense. Limited spots are available. Below is the application for this initial training cohort. Please complete all fields and submit by March 25, 2019.
