This website is a free online resource for those seeking to use human rights to achieve racial justice.
The catalyst for this website was Using Human Rights to Achieve Racial Justice: We Shall Overcome, a convening in November 2011 sponsored by the U.S. Human Rights Fund (USHRF), a project of Public Interest Projects. The meeting took place in Philadelphia and brought together advocates, funders, artists, and journalists from across the United States for a discussion of how to use human rights principles, strategies, and mechanisms to further racial justice.
The Racial Justice site is a result of the energy, conversations, insights, and models explored in the conference. It provides results-driven suggestions for applying human rights values, standards, and strategies to racial justice issues.
