In commemoration of the 64th Anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights this year, the US Human Rights Network is highlighting 64 member and partner organizations as a way to raise awareness about the domestic human rights movement.
Yesterday, October 22, marked the 17th National Day of Protest against Police Brutality, Repression, and the Criminalization of a Generation. This week, we feature seven organizations challenging state repression and the criminal justice system. From racial profiling, to mass incarceration and political prisoners, these organizations are working for dignity, human rights and an end to repression.
The organizations highlighted this week are: Center for Constitutional Rights, Malcolm X Center for Self-Determination, Southern Center for Human Rights, Rights Working Group, Georgians for Alternatives to the Death Penalty, Malcolm X Grassroots Movement, and All of Us or None.
The Human Rights framework is essential to the reaffirmation of our humanity and rights beyond the limits of the US constitutional framework. Malcolm X Grassroots Movement
