Blogging for Human Rights Day
Last week, our country re-elected a President who has been an outspoken supporter of DREAM activists, LGBTQ people and families, and the green economy. Yet, the United States clearly has a long way to go before human rights, liberty and justice are a reality for all. While our media pays a lot of attention to international issues of human rights, what does it mean to bring the discussion home?
From the death penalty, prison conditions and the excessive use of force by police to the protection of workers’ rights, health rights and migrants’ rights—we believe that there is an urgent need to shift the conversation on human rights to our own backyards. It is time for the U.S. to embrace international human rights standards and apply them within our borders.
