64 Days for Human Rights: Defending Immigrant, Migrant, Border, Refugee, and Asylum Seekers’ Rights

Woodhull is a proud member of the US Human Rights Network where we Chair the Sexual Rights and Gender Justice Working Group.  This campaign is shared here and on the US Human Rights Network website – a treasure trove of human rights resources and up-to-the minute information!

In commemoration of the 64th Anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights this year, the US Human Rights Network is highlighting 64 member and partner organizations as a way to raise awareness about the domestic human rights movement.

This week, we feature seven organizations defending immigrant, migrant, border, refugee, and asylum seekers’ rights.

Help us spread the word about what these organizations are doing to promote human rights. Forward this email to a friend, share the features on Facebook, retweet or tweet using #64DaysHR on Twitter.

BAJI’s analysis emphasizes the impact of racism and economic globalization on African American and immigrant communities as a basis for forging alliances across these communities.  The immigrant rights movement and the civil rights movement must come together to forge a new human rights movement in the U.S.
