ACT RFK Human Rights Curriculum project overview
The ACT pilot of the RFK human rights curriculum supported Citizenship teachers across England in using and adapting resources developed by the Robert F. Kennedy Centre for Justice and Human Rights.
The Speak Truth To Power curriculum is based on the UN’s principles of human rights education and its lessons use the stories of human rights defenders.
This short film shows the experiences of teachers and pupils taking part, and the impact the Speak Truth to Power curriculum can have.
