The Newman Smith High School Human Rights Forum presented virtually at the 2016 Global Education Conference at 4:00 PM (US central time) today, Monday, November 14th.
Here is the link to the recording of our presentation for anyone who missed watching it live! https://sas.elluminate.com/…/re…/playback/link/table/dropin…
Our target audiences are students and teachers interested in building better global citizenship in their schools and in raising awareness about different human rights issues around the world. Through the Global Education Conference, we hope to encourage educators to create similar organizations on their campuses and to help them through the process of initiating, organizing and activating their own human rights programs.
We presented our past projects, conferences, and events that we have on our webpage. We discussed the steps that need to be taken in order to successfully create similar projects, and presented our idea for a future non-profit fundraiser that will take place in February of 2017.
It would mean so much to our students to have you in the virtual audience.
A big thanks to Ms. Hardy for tuning in from Stanford and for initiating our involvement in this! Mrs. Cullins also deserves a big hug because she hopped on board the night before and stepped in to flawlessly present when Ms. Hardy's computer wasn't cooperating. We were so lucky to have Mrs. Cullins there since she is a founder of our organization. And last but not least, thank you to Ms. Behnisch for perfectly delivering information about her amazing initiative benefiting our ELL students, Project Connect.
To anyone who tuned in, it means the world to us that you are willing to hear our story. We hope to always inspire a shared sense of humanity among our students, our school, our community, and our world.
