Racial Justice Through Human Rights Program Youth Program, Pittsburgh PA 

A racially, economically and geographically diverse group of thirteen youth met throughout the 2010 to 2011 school year to explore racial justice through a human rights lens. 

In the course of the year they looked at issues of peace, social change movements, racism and human rights. 

Out of the ideas the youth explored on racial justice and human rights came the idea of having Pittsburgh declared a Human Rights City in the US. On April 19th 2011, through the work of the group, Pittsburgh became the 5th Human Rights City in the world.
