International Advocacy

HRE USA monitors the United States’ compliance with human rights treaty obligations and in particular treaties in which the United States has committed to teaching its own people the fundamental principles of human rights.

Our efforts include submitting  shadow reports to accompany and critique U.S. government reports to the UN Human Rights Council as part of the Universal Periodic Review process, convening summits on the national status of HRE in the United States with relevant stakeholders, and putting pressure on the U.S. government to fulfill their treaty obligations.
