IHL Action Campaign Fall 2014

The IHL Action Campaign aims to teach American youth and young adults about IHL through peer education.

o   The IHL Action Campaign empowers young people to think critically and grapple with issues of armed conflict facing our world, preparing them to be informed global citizens.

o   The American Red Cross selects university and high school students to become team leaders. After undergoing extensive training, these team leaders teach IHL to a group of local high school students (team members).

o   Team leaders teach the group of team members about IHL through Raid Cross, an educational program that engages students in simulations and activities.

o   Team leaders and team members take what they have learned in Raid Cross and educate the wider community about IHL through a creative project called the “IHL Action Campaign.”

o   The 2013–14 IHL Action Campaign was successful in teaching participants about IHL. A comprehensive survey analysis conducted by the American Red Cross reveals that a substantial increase in understanding of IHL principles took place among participants.

International Services kick-off meeting on Wednesday, 3 September 2014, 5:30 p.m., at the Salt Lake Area Chapter building 555 East 300 South.  This initial meeting will probably take about 90 minutes. See flyer for more information.
