About the Conference
Advancing Human Rights 2015 is an opportunity for human rights and other social justice activists, organizers, leaders and scholars to:
- · come together to build on our successes over the past two years
- · inspire and energize each other
- · strategize and collaborate
- · expand and strengthen our advocacy, leadership and networks
- · sharpen our tools to become more strategic and effective in the movement for human rights and social justice in the United States
Sharpening Our Vision, Reclaiming Our Dreams
As we look back over the wins of the past half-century, we understand the importance of today's moment to sharpen our vision of the world we want, and reclaim the dreams of those who fought before us. Join us to share strategies and engage in collective action to re-center an economic, social and cultural rights (ESCR) agenda for the movement; expand our response to the fight against racial oppression, poverty, inequality, violence and the criminalization of black, brown, indigenous peoples groups, transgender people, women and other economically and politically marginalized groups; and realize all human rights for all.
About the Network
The US Human Rights Network is a national network of organizations and individuals working to build and strengthen a people-centered human rights movement in the United States, where leadership is centered on the most directly affected by human rights violations, and the full range of diversity within communities is respected and embraced. We work to secure dignity and justice for all.
