“Children Are The Future of Human Rights”: CHRP Summit June 2019

CHRP hosted its annual community summit on June 1st 2019. The 2019 theme was "Children Are the Future of Human Rights."  This year's focus was to bring youth voices, including high school students and young leaders to the table with adult educators, activists and scholars. The goal of this summit was to collaborate and collectively workshop actionable steps to promote and protect children's rights in our CT communities. The summit was a great success; youth and adult participants walked away with new knowledge and tangible plans/ideas on how to elevate children's rights in their own spaces of work.

AuerFarm Compact Gathering-December 2018

The Auer Farm Compact Gathering brought numerous stakeholders from across CT together to design an outline and framework that sought to guide human rights related community action.  The gathering and design sessions aimed to pay homage to the Universal Declaration of Human Rights by focusing on the intersected nature of human rights and prioritized responding to the explicitly stated needs of the community. The gathering, taking place around International Human Rights Day in December 2018, was a strategic moment in CHRP's mission, and an important milestone in setting forth our collective vision to advance human rights education and advocacy in Connecticut.

Why Auerfarm?

Auerfarm in Bloomfield, CT has a legacy of connecting the Connecticut community. Beatrice Fox Auerbach, known for her humanitarian work, philanthropy, and business sense, was the driving force behind the farm. Auerfarm was even host to various global dignitaries, including Eleanor Roosevelt. Since its designation as a 4H property, the farm has continued to serve as a space for community building and education.
