Last week USHRN facilitated an important webinar on ending violence at work and the recent standard-setting convention passed at this year’s International Labor Conference. In case you missed the webinar, please check out the recording here.

The US Human Rights Network was proud to join our guests doing important work on the ground to end violence at work: Magalí Brosio & Anya Victoria Delgado from the Center for Women’s Global Leadership at Rutgers University (CWGL), Sulma Guzmán from Centro de los Derechos del Migrante Inc. (CDM), Cecilia Leiva & Roushaunda Williams from Unite Here!, and Cassandra Waters from the American Federation of Labor and Congress of Industrial Organizations (AFL-CIO). Read more about our panelists here.

We invite you to support 16 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence, an international campaign coordinated by the Center for Women’s Global Leadership used by activists around the world as an organizing strategy to call for the elimination of all forms of gender-based violence.

Last week’s discussion focused on the crucial intersections of women’s rights and labor rights. We invite you to continue your advocacy through the upcoming Universal Periodic Review. The United States’ human rights record will be reviewed by the United Nations in spring of 2020. Please join our members who are creating and participating in Working Groups covering nearly two dozen interconnected issue areas, including Women’s Rights and Workers’ Rights.
