INSTITUTES

ushrn_s4
We are each, first and foremost, human beings. We may identify ourselves in many other ways but our humanity remains a constant. It is on that shared basis that we declare and demand our fundamental human rights and our common freedoms. The Human Rights Institute will offer a full day of discussions, issue-focused work groups, and skill-building/problem-solving sessions; this is a serious “how to do it” institute.

Led by a group of experienced human rights activists and skilled trainers, attendees will learn how to integrate broad and well-accepted human rights themes into existing civil rights advocacy to achieve specific goals. In this Daylong Institute, participants will also have the opportunity to build an action plan to move their agendas forward within a human rights framework, to develop talking points on critical issues, as well as build practical sound bites for use with public officials and the media. We will address common issues that activists face related to family, sexual expression, relationships, education, reproductive justice, sex worker rights, and sexual health.

This institute is convened as part of a partnership between Woodhull Sexual Freedom Alliance and the US Human Rights Network.

SisterSong, the Women of Color Reproductive Justice Collective, understands that sexual rights—including the right to exercise and express sexuality freely and safely; be protected from sexual violence and discrimination; be in charge of decisions about one’s own body; have access to information and services necessary for sexual health; and experience sexual pleasure—are human rights. Since 2007, SisterSong has organized the national Let’s Talk About Sex Conference to celebrate the human right to a healthy and satisfying sexuality, while mobilizing participants to end reproductive oppression.  The Let’s Talk About Sex Institute will offer a full day of discussions, issue-focused work groups, and skill-building/problem-solving sessions. Led by a group of experienced human rights and reproductive justice activists, participants will learn how to integrate the reproductive justice framework into existing civil and human rights advocacy to achieve specific goals and political victories.  In this daylong Institute, participants will also have the opportunity to build an action plan to move their agendas forward within the reproductive justice framework and to develop talking points on critical issues nationally and regionally.
