December 10, 2013

Happy Human Rights Day 2013!

In recognition of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR), we are proud to release Advancing Human Rights: A Status Report on Human Rights in the United States, USHRN's second annual report on the state of human rights in 2013. The report features many of the organizations highlighted (and listed below) that took part in Advancing Human Rights: The UDHR Campaign and illustrates the intersectionality of the struggle for human rights in the US. As the campaign draws to a close, we would like to thank everyone that participated as we celebrate the grassroots human rights organizations that are building a people-centered movement in communities across the country. This week we acknowledge the contributions of several national organizations to the ongoing struggle to uphold and defend human rights. We encourage you to visit their websites and learn more about their work today:
