The convening will feature discussions on topics such as Housing, Displacement, and Economic Rights; Reproductive Justice and Voting Rights; Human Migration, Mobility and Freedom; and Water and Resource Rights, with facilitators from SisterSong, AFSC, Georgia Latino Alliance for Human Rights, and other human rights organizations.

The National Human Rights Cities Alliance is a member-led and organized initiative of the USHRN. It works to strengthen relationships among Human Rights Cities organizers, including grassroots and local advocates for Human Rights Cities, national and international human rights advocates, scholar-practitioners, and others working to advance human rights.

The upcoming Atlanta gathering reflects the principles of a people-centered human rights movement that is both intersectional and transformational. Together we aim to shift the discourse to center human rights and press policymakers to prioritize people and communities over corporate profits and economic growth.

Registration is available on a sliding scale according to need; no one will be turned away for lack of ability to pay. The registration fee includes lunch on Saturday and coffee/tea/snacks/ water throughout the gathering.
