Template for UPR One-Page Advocacy Document

The following is a suggested template for non-governmental organization (NGO) submissions to member governments of the United Nations as part of the Universal Periodic Review (UPR) process. This submission should be a short, accessible one-pager (back and front), and should be a summary of an issue with related recommendations and questions that you want member governments to take up with the U.S. Government during the May 2015 in-person review of the U.S. compliance on its overall human rights record in Geneva, Switzerland. Any organization or individual may create and submit a one-pager, whether or not you submitted a longer report in September 2015.
