Human Rights. Yes! Action and Advocacy on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities provides a comprehensive human rights curriculum on the rights of persons with disabilities developed by leading experts in the fields of disability rights, international human rights law, human rights education, and grassroots advocacy. It draws on the full body of international human rights law with a focus on the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities. This training manual utilizes an active learning approach and is intended to serve as a resource for organizations, human rights advocates, national human rights institutions, governmental human rights focal points and international development and humanitarian assistance organizations. This new edition reflects significant developments in the disability rights field since the Convention came into force in 2008 and includes new case studies, updated statistics, and a new section on how to use the treaty.

The manual is available in a sleeve box hard copy format ($65) or the three-ring binder version ($75). Each volume also includes a DVD of the full text and a small booklet of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child.
