In the coming years, the United States will undergo several human rights reviews. In October the United Nations (UN) will review the U.S. Government on its human rights progress under the ICCPR (International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights). In 2014, the UN will review U.S. Government progress under the CERD (Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Racial Discrimination).  In 2015 the U.S. Government will undergo its second Universal Periodic Review, which looks at the U.S. human rights record with respect to all rights - civil, political, economic, social and cultural.

Please join the US Human Rights Network and the Center for Women's Global Leadership at our session in New York to learn the many ways in which social justice activists can get involved in these review processes and use international human rights tools in your advocacy.

Discussions will cover current concerns related to reproductive rights, racial profiling, racial discrimination, worker’s rights, and other human rights in the United States.
