A publication of the US Human Rights Network and Network member organization the Atlanta Public Sector Alliance (APSA), "Born of Struggle, Implemented through Struggle: Reflections on Organizing and Building a People-Centered Human Rights Movement in the U.S.," attempts to present a grassroots narrative of human rights that challenges both the standard academic notions of rights and the ideology of "American exceptionalism." It is premised on the position of Malcolm X that the struggle for the full emancipation of all of humanity is a "struggle for human rights." Starting from there, the manual attempts to address in short form, three fundamental questions:
1) What are Human Rights and where do they come from?
2) What is Power, where does it come from, and how is it expressed?
3) What is Organizing and what can it enable and accomplish?
