Dignity in Schools

Vision: NESRI works to build a broad movement for economic and social rights, including health, housing, education and work with dignity. Based on the principle that fundamental human needs create human rights obligations on the part of the government and private sector, NESRI advocates for public policies that guarantee the universal and equitable fulfillment of these rights.

Impact: NESRI works with community orgs to strengthen their campaigns and effect change. NSERI brings an inclusive human rights approach that builds power, shifts narratives and debates, and changes policies by putting people’s experiences at the center and bridges divisions between issues and communities.
