Call for Signatories to Report to UN Human Rights Committee on Domestic Violence and Gun Violence in U.S.

Post to Twitter Post to Facebook

From colleagues at the University of Miami’s Human Rights Clinic:

Attached and available here is the final shadow report submitted recently to the United Nations Human Rights Committee by the Advocates for Human Rights, the Human Rights Clinic at the University of Miami, Legal Momentum, and Women Empowered, in response to the Committee’s inquiry regarding domestic violence and gun violence in the United States.

We will publish the version with the sign-ons on the web, send the revised version to the Committee, and use that revised document in our Geneva-based advocacy on domestic and gun violence issues in October.

If you would like to sign on to the report, please email Dan Kinney at by October 8, 2013. Please indicate if you are signing on in your individual capacity or on behalf of your organization/institution.
