As the US government works to roll back our human rights protections, it is more important than ever that we mobilize a human rights constituency to defend human rights for all residents. The US will appear in front of the “World Court of Human Rights” at the United Nations and we need your help to build a case and engage international allies in strengthening our work for human rights in communities around our country.
The US Human Rights Cities Alliance invites you to participate in the UPR Cities Project, which supports local efforts to document local human rights conditions as part of a United Nations Universal Periodic Review (UPR) of the United States’ human rights record. We invite organizers to participate in local human rights review processes and build a national cities stakeholder report. The UPR Cities website & upcoming webinars provide tools for organizers to help residents learn more about the Universal Periodic Review of the United States and how we can use international reports to facilitate local policy changes.
