A Message from USHRN's ICCPR Taskforce

Feb 7, 2019

Respectful Greetings: 

On behalf of the USHRN's ICCPR Task Force co-chairs, I am writing to remind you that the Human Rights Committee's 125th session will take place in Geneva, from 4- 29 March 2019. At this session, the Committee will adopt the List of Issues Prior to the Reporting of the United States of America. 

The co-chairs would like to get an idea of how many NGOs who made submissions for the List of Issues will be attending the session (or the UN Human Rights Council 40th session during the same time) and staying through at least the 2nd and 3rd week of March. The USHRN's ICCPR Task Force is exploring the possibility of organizing a briefing during this time frame. 

Please also note that the deadline to register for participation at any of the Committee's formal/informal meetings is 22 February 2019. 

We look forward to receiving responses at ti ll 12noon EST on Monday, 11 February 2019. 

In solidarity,
Roberto Borrero (Taíno),
International Mechanisms Director, US Human Rights Network
