Human Rights Cities UPR Consultation (2/27)

The following message is brought to you by the USHRN Human Rights Cities Alliance -


The US Human Rights Network invites you to participate in Universal Periodic Review (UPR) advocacy later this month in Washington, DC through a consultation between civil society and embassies. This work builds on our ongoing efforts to expand U.S. grassroots participation in the UN human rights assessment.


This is an excellent opportunity to speak directly with officials from other countries who will be present at the Review of the United States in May, to advocate for your community or issue area.
