Those Among Us: The Human Rights Champions of North Dakota Volume 1 is a multi-disciplinary media project documenting the human rights and social justice champions of North Dakota. Through video interviews capturing discussions about the motivation behind and the importance of their work, this project strives to create a historical record of the important work currently taking place in North Dakota in a compelling and visually creative way.
Each of the 20 champions will be interviewed to discuss their experiences and motivations, and the societal importance of their work. Using the Universal Declaration of Human Rights as the framework for the telecast, the 20 interviews will be editing into a series about human rights in North Dakota. The series will explore the protections enshrined by the UDHR, and the meaning of those protections and their manifestations within North Dakota.
The series is expected to be released via local broadcasters. Excerpts from the interviews will also be used as part of the traveling exhibit and as part of of the educational curriculum developed for secondary education.
