The Universal Declaration of Human Rights: Dignity for All

The National Center for Civil and Human Rights is pleased to announce a new initiative to bring our mission of inspiration straight to your community. We are now facilitating a one-hour interactive workshop, The Universal Declaration of Human Rights: Dignity for All, at local companies, organizations, clubs, and religious and university groups. This workshop was developed in partnership with the US Human Rights Network and provides a basic introduction to The Universal Declaration of Human Rights, a document that is foundational to the mission of The Center. If you are interested in hosting one of these workshops, please contact Dina Tyson, programs intern at



The Center provides weekly Highlight Tours for our visitors. Our exhibit interpreters, who are trained to facilitate conversations about our exhibitions, lead these tours. Highlight Tours are held every Tuesday and begin at 2 p.m. Meet in the main lobby. Should you have any questions about our guided tours, please speak to a Visitor Services staff member.

The exhibit interpreter program at the Center for Civil and Human Rights offers participants the opportunity to learn more about the content of our exhibitions, how to engage our visitors and to lead our dynamic tours. No previous touring or teaching experience is required, only enthusiasm for facilitating dialogue about the complex stories of civil and human rights. Exhibit interpreters are volunteers and adhere to all of the requirements noted for volunteers.
