Youth for Human Rights International (YHRI) is an independent non-profit corporation headquartered in Los Angeles, with the purpose of educating people in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights so they become valuable advocates for tolerance and peace.

YHRI has partnered with the America's Schools Program to promote Human Rights among our K-12 students. YHRI works with human rights advocates, legislators, teachers, police and humanitarians to encourage young people to learn and champion human rights.

YHRI has released a series of 30 audiovisual public service announcements, one for each of the articles of the United Nations' Universal Declaration of Human Rights. The first of these messages, released in late 2005, have been screened to more than 130 million people. Click here to view the videos.
