STF Supports Launch of HRE USA Network

Human Rights Educators USA (HRE USA) is a new network dedicated to promoting human rights education in the United States. Over the last year, the Human Rights Watch Student Task Force has been supporting the development of HRE USA, which is now open for general membership.
