Show & Tell: Global Human Rights Direct

It doesn’t take more than a quick glance at news headlines to see a terrible fact: human rights are compromised in every part of the globe. But, behind these headlines, there are groups of people working to stop human rights abuses. They are survivors, activists, scholars, translators, and policymakers

from around the world who want to build connections, share their knowledge and create solutions.

Inspired by his work in the classroom and his activism around the globe addressing human rights abuses, UA Associate Professor of Gender and Women's Studies Bill Simmons is launching a website that aims to revolutionize how human rights is taught and globally communicated, with an eye on defending those rights and to ultimately find achievable solutions to ending abuses.

Funded by a Confluencenter “Innovation Farm” grant, the website – GlobalHumanRightsDirect.com – is set to launch in January. It will be previewed at Confluencenter’s Jan. 13 Show & Tell event. During the presentation, Dr. Simmons will showcase the features of Global Human Rights Direct (GHRD), which allows members to: video conference with human rights experts, connect with individuals and groups interested in similar human rights issues, learn more about important human rights’ topics, publicize human rights causes/organizations, and become educated in ways to contribute to stopping abuses.
