WHO WE ARE
The U.S. Human Rights Cities Alliance works to build a network of local, national, and international human rights leaders and to support activists and organizers advancing the human rights city organizing framework. The Alliance promotes the development and sharing of knowledge and models for improving respect for human rights and dignity. Recognizing that human rights don’t trickle down, they rise up, we support communities organizing and acting together to bring human rights to bear at home, drawing upon global human rights standards, institutions, and movements. Guided by the Human Rights Cities Statement of Principles, we promote “people-centered human rights” based in experiences and struggles of marginalized communities.
WHAT WE DO
Support local and cross-city reporting on human rights at the UN
