Letter to the Department of State: COVID-19 + Human Rights

Updated: Apr 9, 2020

The USHRN UPR Task Force is calling on the US government to respect, protect, and promote international human rights during this COVID-19 pandemic and beyond. We sent this letter to the Department of State today, asking that the government includes information on US responses to COVID-19 in its UPR report to the Human Rights Council. While the UPR has been postponed to November, we will continue to hold the Trump administration accountable for human rights during the pandemic, and to call for the protection of our most vulnerable, marginalized, and historically discriminated communities.
