Timeline -- What makes a citizen? -- Protecting all human rights -- Your political rights -- Promoting economic justice -- Protecting the global environment -- Preserving cultural rights.
The basic human rights-- a safe environment, freedom of expression, education-- are right that are worked for and defended around the world. Knutson shows how young people can protect and promote rights equality, within and beyond their own communities. The book includes investigative activities and research projects that encourage critical and creative thinking skills, as well as mini-biographies about real people performing meaningful work on human rights issues today.-- Adapted from back cover.
