JOIN THE HUMAN RIGHTS MOVEMENT!
A growing segment of advocates and activists are turning to human rights to secure social, political, and economic objectives that they have sought for decades. Human rights help ensure more participatory and sustainable solutions to social justice issues, provide common standards against which to measure the shortcomings of domestic policies, reframe social justice issues as human rights violations, expand the circle of allies to the larger global human rights community, and enhance accountability beyond the U.S. justice or political systems.
