U.S. hears from advocates on access to justice and CRTC

04/01/2014, Report, All Basic Human Needs

In April 2014, there was a meeting (called the "civil society consultation on access to justice") in which access to justice leaders were able to give input to United States representatives on how it should implement suggestions from the U.N.'s 2010 Universal Periodic Review regarding access to justice and what the U.S. should include in its CERD compliance report. Debra Gardner testified on behalf of the NCCRC. There is now a recording of the session that you can watch. For more information, check out American University's page about the UPR.
