The US Human Rights Network’s 2017 national conference will be a space for collective healing, reflection, and cooperative strategy.

In 2017, a new federal administration rose to power using oppressive and harmful rhetoric that has led to human rights violations in the communities of USHRN’s members. In these early months of the Trump administration, community members and organizations have been forced to rapidly respond to attacks on human rights and intensifying the social, political, and economic conditions that we face. In the midst of these urgent fights, rapid responses, and movement shifts, we want the USHRN 2017 national conference to be a space for directly-impacted people, community organizers, communicators, movement lawyers, professors, culture bearers, workers, parents, and funders to gather, heal from the past twelve months of Trump, reflect on how we got to this political moment in time, and intentionally intersect coordinated strategies to continue advancing a people-centered human rights movement in the US.

Join us in Atlanta, Georgia from December 7-10 for Advancing Human Rights 2017!
