BUILDING AND SUSTAINING HUMAN RIGHTS CITIES TOGETHER IN THE SOUTH
Join human rights leaders to explore the human rights city organizing model to “bring human rights home”
We are working to popularize people-centered human rights that is intentionally both intersectional—that is, consciously working to build broad alliances across diverse groups of people and organizations, and transformational—aimed at fundamentally re-ordering power relations of society to center the leadership and priorities of frontline communities.
In Atlanta, we expect to address challenges that are common in many cities and communities such as affordable housing/displacement and the privatization of water and other public utilities. Together we can help shift the discourse to center human rights and press policy makers to prioritize people and communities over corporate profits and economic growth.
