Join the Jackson Human Rights Institute (JHRI) Friday, Septemer 22nd through Sunday, September 24th for a training on Human Rights Budgeting. 

The aim of this training is to build a grassroots campaign that will compel the City of Jackson to adopt the application of Human Rights Budgeting as the principle means through which it determines the allocation of public resources and goods. 

The Human Rights Budgeting campaign is part of our larger initiative to make Jackson a Human Rights City, anchored by a Human Rights Charter and a Human Rights Commission, as well as Human Rights Budgeting. 

The Human Rights City Campaign is part of Cooperation Jackson's larger Just Transition Plan Initiative, the aim of which is to make Jackson a Transition City rooted in a) Cooperative Economics and Social Solidarity, b) Climate and Ecological Sustainability, c) Human Rights, and d) Digital Fabrication and Community Production. 

Please join us in this training to learn the fundamentals of what Human Rights Budgeting is, how it works, how to share this information with the community and how we can utilze it to help address the social issues that confront the municipality and the city as a whole.
