Human Rights Youth Education
Our human rights youth education reflects our educational commitment to preserve and promote the American ideal of strong, diverse communities of nurturing families that care for each other and raise up nurturers. Research shows that the most effective human rights advocates who happen to be parents pick up crying infants to foster a sense of protection and empowerment in their children. Research also shows that the ideal economy is a caring, circular economy where we protect and empower the human rights of ALL wealth creators, i.e., the people.
The Human Rights Pocketbook Venture (HRPV)
The Empathy Surplus Network USA launched the HRPV in 2018 to partner with other civil society organizations, ethical businesses, and government task force agencies to distribute complimentary pocketbook copies of the Illustrated Universal Declaration of Human Rights to teachers and students in K-12 and college every year.
Human Rights Pocketbook Venture Organizational Teams
The HRPV Partners are individual volunteers of member organizations of the human rights youth education branch of the Empathy Surplus Network USA (ESNU). HRPV partner volunteers fundraise and recruit teachers on behalf of their own organization’s efforts to educate youth about human rights under the Human Rights Pocketbook Venture banner. They brand their efforts using their own organizational logos and mission. Each dollar raised by HRPV partner volunteers is invested as follows:
- 55% for ESNU pocketbook creation with partner input
- 15% for ESNU shipping and handling of pocketbooks
- 10% for ESNU administration
- 20% sent directly to member organizations every trimester

Commitment to Govern with Empathy for and Responsibility to Human Beings
is the goal of the people of the United Nation’s Universal Declaration of Human Rights Articles 1 and 29, respectively. The following 28-minute YouTube video by the United Nations Human Rights illustrates why the simple act of sharing the human rights pocketbook with young children has great benefits in educating their parents.

George Lakoff's Resources
The basic idea is this: Dr. Lakoff's resources are free and open to all. He will provide framing suggestions regularly over social media, and whoever receives them can decide how to use them, and whether to share them or retweet them. Dr. Lakoff's process is bottom-up.
Dr. Lakoff also offers this framing service to activist organizations, media folks, and elected officials and their staff.
