The Universal Periodic Review & You:

How to Contribute as Civil Society To Review the US Human Rights Record

Joshua Cooper, Director, Four Freedoms Forum

UDC-DCSL Building 39, Room 205.  Tuesday, Oct. 5, 12:15 to 1:30 PM

How would you measure human rights in the United States of America? What is the most serious violation of human rights? What would Eleanor Roosevelt say about how we are fulfilling the Universal Declaration of Human Rights she helped craft under her leadership at the United Nations?

In one month on November 5, the United States will have their human rights record reviewed for the first time in the UN Human Rights Council Universal Periodic Review. Cooper will share his perspective as the Geneva Coordinator for the UPR Project of the US Human Rights Network where he worked with 300 NGOs to mobilize civil society to put their perspective forward on how we can improve our human rights record at home.

Cooper recently returned from two weeks of advocacy work in Geneva preparing for this historic session next month. There are still ways you can be part of the movement and help shape human rights in America.
