Worhnitz’s presentation covered the various components of the Youth for Human Rights education program, which include a series of compelling public service announcements, each conveying the essence of one of the 30 articles of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. It also features booklets designed to educate youth on the Declaration and The Story of Human Rights educational film that presents the history of human rights.
