Respect My Health, Respect My Dignity: Building a Culture of Human Rights
During this interactive workshop, the promotores will identify effective strategies to involve the community through organization and mobilization that will bring about an understanding of the collective power that achieves transforming change and recognizes the persistence and resiliency of our communities. We will explore how to emphasize the resilience of our communities in these difficult times, how can social change be achieved by elevating the voices of people in the community who narrate their stories, and what power do I have as health promotora/promotor and how can I use that power to mobilize my community to create significative change.
- Explore how human rights are applied in our daily lives.
- Identify at least three fundamental human right violations to enable them to educate the community towards developing solidarity,
persistence and resilience.
- Create opportunities to practice the impact of social power in organizing and mobilizing the community to achieve intentionally strategic social change.
