Remembrance is a vital human activity. It shapes our links to the past and helps define us in the present. We have an obligation to remember human rights crimes as well as the reasons why they happened and were allowed to happen. It is important for students to visit sites where such crimes occurred, so that they may bear witness and be further motivated to work for a world without violence and without victims.
The SMU Human Rights Education Program offers scholarships up to $1,000
to help make it possible for students to travel to various human rights
locations, training events and conferences.
