University of Connecticut, Stamford Campus
One University Place, Stamford CT

Price:  $25.00 (includes breakfast & lunch)

As part of its initiative to promote Human Rights Education in Connecticut classrooms, the Thomas J. Dodd Research Center at the University of Connecticut is partnering with the Robert F. Kennedy Center for Justice and Human Rights to introduce teachers to the Speak Truth To Power (STTP) human rights curriculum.

This two-day workshop will provide participants with training in STTP lessons, resources, and projects, along with guidance in integrating the curriculum into district and school-level standards. For those unable to take two days to attend this exciting program we offer a one-day option.


  • Review of human rights education concepts and standards
  • Introduction to the Defenders Curriculum and STTP online resources
  • In-depth training in 3-4 selected Defender Lessons.
  • Work in small groups to develop course-specific lesson-plans for use in their own classrooms.

    Workshop is  open to enrollment by pre-service and in-service teachers of all grades and content areas.  Workshop examples and tools will be most appropriate to Language Arts and Social Studies teachers at the middle and high school level.
