We are an organization that uses art, in all its manifestations to communicate the knowledge and learning and to educate about the principles embedded in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, in a positive way. We are convinced that the development of a culture of human rights is one of the most important contributions that can be made to the development of a better and more humane society that respects human rights.
THE UNIVERSAL DECLARATION OF HUMAN RIGHTS is “a common standard of achievement for all peoples and all nations, to the end that every individual and every organ of society, keeping this Declaration constantly in mind, shall strive by teaching and education to promote respect for these rights and freedoms”
International Solidarity for Human Rights (ISHR) is a non profit 501 (c) (3) organization stablished in the state of Florida on December 16, 2008. We serve students and the community in Florida, USA (Miami Dade and Broward Counties). In addition we are establishing Human Rights programs in Panama, Canada and Spain. We serve the community through our programs Human Rights Class in a Box and the Human Rights Artistic Routes . We offer Human Rights Education, an introduction to the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, to promote awareness and dissemination of the articles of the UDHR through art and in a positive way. We promote the education, learning and knowledge of the UDHR as a way of life for the prevention of violence, dehumanization, and bullying, and the promotion of equality and inclusion.
ISHR is a signatory to the United Nations Global Compact, the largest voluntary corporate citizenship initiative in the world that encourages corporations to implement its ten universal principles, which encourage responsible business practices in the areas of human rights, labor-relations, environment protection and anti-corruption.
