Announcing an exciting conference, Sept. 28-29 in Atlanta: Seeking Justice Beyond our Shores: The Case for U.S. Ratification of the First Optional Protocol to the ICCPR. Event co-sponsors are the National Judicial Conduct and Disability Law Project, Inc.; The Rod Logal Center for Justice; United Nations Association of Atlanta; and the United Nations Association, Council of Organizations.
The organizers say:
"As part of our Opt IN USA campaign, you are cordially invited to join what we anticipate will be a panel of leading human rights advocates discussing in relation to their respective constituents, the impact and implications, if any, of America having not yet ratified the First Optional Protocol to the ICCPR. The conference will also include brief talks collectively: proposing objectively discernible, structural gaps in America’s legal system as they relate to rights protection; recalling the history of interbranch comity in our country; asserting constitutional infirmities in the regulation of speech among U.S. legal professionals; and suggesting if not establishing how all of this impedes U.S. court officers in responding “effectively and consistently to human rights violations and abuses”. Each conference talk will be followed by full panel input through questions and/or comments."
