This symposium aims to highlight the urgent need for the incorporation of international human rights, labor and environmental norms into California's social studies curriculum. It is our belief that, in order for our young adults to be better prepared to meet the challenges of the 21st century, they must have a firm understanding of the institutions and norms that inform international relations.

Toward this end, we have invited leading figures in the areas of human rights, environmental advocacy, humanitarian assistance and education to deliver presentations on ways in which global issues might be included in California's social studies curricula.

These speakers include:

Ron Herring, Director of the California International Studies Project

Anne Parrish, Chair of the Amnesty International Human Rights Educators program

Jack Weinstein, Director of Facing History and Ourselves

Joan Kelly-Williams, Director of the Bay Area chapter of the American Red Cross

Linda Tubach, Director of the United Teachers of LA's Collective Bargaining Education Project

Gerald Lieberman, Director of the State Education and Environmental Roundtable
