THE HUMAN RIGHTS CHAMPIONS OF NORTH DAKOTA

A contemporary history PROJECT

“Those Among Us: The Human Rights Champions of North Dakota”  is a multi-disciplinary media project documenting the Human Rights and Social Justice champions of North Dakota.

Through portrait photographs, essays written by the participants and an episodic television series capturing discussions about the motivation behind and the importance of their work, this project creates a historical record of the important work currently taking place in North Dakota.

Each of the champions discuss their experiences and motivations, and the societal importance of their work.

Using the Universal Declaration of Human Rights as the framework, “Those Among Us” explores the protections enshrined by the UDHR, and the meaning of those protections and their manifestations inside North Dakota.
