What are human rights and what role do they play in a democratic society like the United States? In this session, we will explore the historical importance of human rights in expanding equality and freedom in the US and consider ways in which human rights continue to help advance social justice today. In addition, we will discuss the ways in which practices of democratic citizenship like voting and protest serve as crucial components of the human rights project.
