Would you like to contribute to travel funds for activists from the United States to attend the Universal Periodic Review of the us in 2020? Please click here to donate.
The 2019-2020 United Nations Review of the United States Human Rights Record provides an important opportunity for local human rights advocates to build support for more people-centered national and local policies. Organizers in cities and communities across the US are working together to amplify our voices in the global conversation about how we can improve human rights conditions for more of the world’s people. Through the USHRN, many human rights advocates have helped show the international community what is happening inside U.S. borders and developing new thinking about solutions. Our next step is to send delegations of grassroots human rights defenders to lobby UN officials to bring our human rights priorities and recommendations into the official proceedings of the US Universal Periodic Review. We need you to help support this delegation with your donation! Please help us build on the powerful work of grassroots human rights activists and help us show the international community that despite the actions of the Trump Administration, US residents believe in human rights and are working hard to “bring them home!”
We know from past work of the USHRN that grassroots organizers can have a powerful impact on the thinking of international officials, and the experience of seeing the United Nations in action can help our movements develop creative ideas for using these mechanisms to build power.
All donations made through this form will go towards funding travel costs of USHRN members for the 2020 Universal Periodic Review of the United States at the United Nations in Geneva. To make a general donation to the US Human Rights Network instead, please use the general donation form at this link.
