New! Close the Gap Video and Curriculum Resources!

The 5-part Close the Gap documentary series on race, class, and place disparities was created by the Twin Cities Public television (tpt) in close partnership with the Itasca Project and Twin Cities Compass & Wilder Research. The University of Minnesota Human Rights Center designed two companion guides to foster dialogue on ways to recognize and eliminate these race, class, and place disparities in our schools and communities.
The Educator Guide
provides curriculum resources for engaging youth in grades 8-12.

The Community Guide offers key discussion activities for Human Rights Commissioners, community leaders, and other interested individuals to better understand these disparities and their causes, as well as to work to overcome them.

The Human Rights Education Series:
Resources for the ever growing body of educators and activists seeking to build a culture of human rights in the U.S. and abroad. The Series is published by the Human Rights Resource Center with different partners for each topic book.
