Join us for the Urgent Actions Webinar next week!

Over the past year, multiple UN experts - both working groups and special rapporteurs have come to the U.S. on official country visits, hearing and documenting direct testimony from people in cities across the nation who are fighting on the frontlines for their human rights in this country. While these visits are positive, we know the vast majority of stories of human rights abuses have yet to be heard. So a question we often hear is, apart from the meetings held in a the country visits, what avenues are available for us to share information about the abuses we're experiencing? We are offering this webinar as an introduction to individual complaints, and we hope to answer the following questions:

What are individual complaints?
Different types of individual complaints
How to submit information (including any tips or best practices)
Why is it important to submit individual complaints?
Where to find resources and additional information
