ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS – SECOND EDITION
We would like to recognize the talented BlueLaw team who worked tirelessly on the second edition of Human Rights. YES!. The authors of the second edition, Janet Lord and Allison deFranco, were able to integrate their passion, commitment, and expertise into this new training tool. Without Janet’s leadership, vision, and sense of purpose, no edition of this manual would ever have been possible. Allison provided new ideas and determination to ensure that this publication was an effective, user-friendly resource for both advocates and practitioners. Both Mathew Burns and Sarah Fowkes from the BlueLaw team provided research, fact-checking, and editing support under tight deadlines.
With the publication of the second edition of Human Rights Yes!, Nancy Flowers has now edited eight publications in the Human Rights Center’s Human Rights Education Series. Nancy provided guidance and encouragement every step of the way and has been an amazing role model to this publication team and to human rights educators across the globe for decades. We would also like to acknowledge additional Human Rights Center team members, Natela Jordan, Vicky Nguyen, and Patrick Finnegan for their contributions.
