The U.S. Government review under the Convention Against Torture took place November 2014. In preparation for the 2014 review, USHRN coordinated working groups focusing on specific areas to advocate for at the CAT Review (CAT Working Groups Description & FAQ). The review has passed, but if you are still interested in engaging in our CAT follow-up and implementation work please email firstname.lastname@example.org and join our CAT Listserve here.
The list below is subject to change and meant to help identify which area you are interested in contributing. The groups are meant to encompass large categories, and you should feel free to join whatever group/s you believe best includes your issue.
