In this Library you will find an array of resources drawn from Equitas’ extensive practice in human rights education to support your work towards social change.  

In collaboration with our partners across the world, the resources included in this library aim to strengthen leadership for advancing human rights, with regards to gender equality and in community life; to strengthen human rights movements; and to improve the practice of human rights educators to engage and influence decision makers around human rights.  

These resources are at the core of our human rights education work. They are organized by language, thematic areas and resource type. We encourage you to use these resources, adapt and improve upon through your own practice, and share them out!
