International Human Rights Monitoring We know that political leaders will not follow human rights obligations without pressure from attentive and informed residents working to ensure that international rights standards are honored in local practices. This takes work to learn about what specific legal obligations national and local leaders have and to monitor local practices to make sure they conform to international expectations. Through the US Human Rights Network, we're able to come together as grassroots US human rights organizers to draw international attention to the gaps between US international legal commitments and the actual practices in the communities where we live.

Universal Periodic Review The next US UPR runs from April 2019 through September 2019.
