This week in Geneva, the U.S. Government is being reviewed and questioned about what it is doing to address and dismantle racism in the U.S. On-the-ground activists are providing reports detailing what is happening on a daily basis to communities of color.
Among those activists are USHRN members and allies, who are sending in some blog posts that we are posting on their behalf. We will also post CERD related blog posts in this space so that you can learn as much as possible about this critical review.
Check out our CERD page for more background information about the review.
