WHAT IS THE “SPEAK TRUTH TO POWER” PROGRAM?

Speak Truth To Power ("STTP") is the human rights education program of the Robert F. Kennedy Human Rights Foundation in Switzerland. It consists of a text and illustrated book with detailed portraits of Swiss and international human rights activists, a didactically conceived photo exhibition, and a play. The goal of this program is to show children and adolescents in Switzerland that they, too, can defend human rights and thus make a significant contribution to the protection of our society. We want to stimulate children's interest in distinguishing between good and bad in the context of human rights.

From classroom to boardroom, human rights cannot be taken for granted.
— Dr. Christoph Karlo, Foundation President
