The UPR occurs once every 4-5 years and is extremely important in fostering accountability & change.  The United States' latest Universal Periodic Review occurred November 9, 2020. The US received a record 300+ recommendations from 100+ UN Member States. These are compiled in the Draft Report of the Universal Periodic Review -- available to view here. 

This March, the new Biden-Harris administration will respond to these recommendations. In a letter to the U.S. Department of State, the UPR Task Force urged the administration to adopt these recommendations and enact policies that reverse the harm of human rights violations and improve the human rights situtation in the United States.
