Human Right Number Thirteen
Freedom to Move
We all have the right to go where we want in our own country and to travel as we wish.
Research immigration laws in the US. Discuss if/how the students would improve these laws.
Write letters to the leaders of your city and country stating that you would like to see the Universal Declaration of Human Rights go into full use. Ask what they intend to do to make this happen and how you and your friends can help.
Here is a link to the current list of Congressmen to find their contact information and send them these letters: https://ballotpedia.org/List_of_current_members_of_the_U.S._Congress
Resist the temptation to play all 30 human rights videos at this point. Save those for each meeting that follows. Carry out the activities and let your students’ own visions of the 30 human rights materialize as the lessons unfold, one at a time.
We would love feedback on your first week and to see pictures of your group participating in these activities! Please submit to us below:
How did your meeting/activities go for this human right?
