The Power of One... The Strength of Many

Our Programs


The Human Rights Education Institute offers proactive education programs to that teach tolerance, respect for diversity and the importance of human rights.  Our programs provide human rights education and cultural competency to the community in an attempt to reduce racial prejudice and increase understanding in our community.

We are on a journey to promote human rights for every person in Idaho. The Human Rights Education Institute addresses a wide range of diversity issues including race, ethnicity, gender, socioeconomic class, age, sexual orientation, religion, disability, and job and life circumstances.
