Education = Empowerment.
Knowledge Leads to Thriving.

“The most important thing we can do to empower thriving is enable people know themselves and to know one another. This is our goal.”

Our Approach

All People Thriving develops education and training materials designed to empower, heal and inspire. We believe when people are empowered, they can reach their own unique highest and fullest potential. We also believe that empowered people, empower people. Our signature programs, Human First Lens, Organizing With Integrity, and Human Rights Advocacy 101 empower learners to create a world where all people are thriving by knowing themselves, building better institutions and organizations, and effectively advocating for systemic change. We’re dedicated to enabling all people to fully thrive by identifying and dismantling internalized and institutionalized oppression. 


Human First Lens

We believe human beings who understand their own basic rights and basic needs – as well as the spectrum-based view of human diversity – are more likely to experience thriving personally, as well as in their relationships, schools, workplaces and communities. When people are thriving, they are also more likely to reject oppression and overcome obstacles – like racism, sexism, ableism and homophobia – that might come their way. The Human First Lens includes several modules, including I, Human, Interrupting and Eradicating Isms, and I Am Me – Label Free. Learners can also receive a Human First Lens Certificate. Materials and free and accessible online according to our economic accessibility commitment; We greatly appreciate contributions from supporters using our “Pay What You Can or Want” model to keep our systems running and our team paid. 


I, Human

Oppression is a human occurrence that takes root when we don’t fully understand our own human rights, our basic human needs, human diversity, or the rights, needs and diversity of those around us. I, Human is designed to empower each of us to more fully understand ourselves as human beings. This module empowers learners to fully thrive by learning about:

  • Our Universal Human Rights & Responsibilities;
  • Our Basic Human Needs;
  • The Spectrum-Based View of Humanity;
  • The Cycle of Oppression; and
  • The Basic Structure of Healthy Human Relationships.

Interrupting and Eradicating Isms

Using the Human First Lens and the Spectrum-Based View of Humanity can help us create a world where isms and oppression like racism, sexism, ableism, and homophobia no longer exist. Interrupting and Eradicating Isms empowers learners to challenge and overcome personal, interpersonal and systemic bias and prejudice. Topics include: 

  • Racism
  • Sexism
  • Homophobia, Heterophobia and Biphobia
  • Religious Discrimination
  • Political Discrimination
  • Ableism
  • Ageism
  • Immigration
  • Classism
  • Good Guys Vs Bad Guys
  • Othering

I Am Me – Label Free

In this module, learners are introduced to the concept of “dismantling”, as well as the I Am Me – Label Free worksheet – a tool to help guide each of us in defining ourselves free from oppression and the labels that have been put upon us by ourselves or others.
