With member group Advocates for Environmental Human Rights, the US Human Rights Network conducted a Human Rights Training and Tribunal in Detroit, Michigan in August 2012.  The training held on day one included leaders of Detroit social justice organizations and provided insight on how to hold the U.S. government accountable to human rights laws and standards that include protections for affordable housing, workers’ rights, environmental justice, access to water, public education, voting rights, and sustainable development.  A Human Rights Tribunal was held on day two to hear the testimonies of Detroit residents whose basic human rights are being denied through the actions of government.  The tribunal was open to the public.
