Most recently, YHRI released a series of 30 audiovisual public service announcements, one for each article of the United Nations’ Universal Declaration of Human Rights. The first of these messages, released in late 2005, have been screened to more than 130 million people.

YHRI also publishes the UNITED Human Rights Handbook, providing educators and leaders with a practical tool with which to teach human rights to the young.

YHRI works with human rights advocates, legislators, teachers, police and humanitarians to encourage young people to learn and champion human rights.
