In October 2014, BreakOUT! participated in human rights hearings in New Orleans with the U.S. Human Rights Network, along with New Orleans’ organizations New Orleans Workers’ Center for Racial Justice (NOWCRJ), Congress of Day Laborers, VOTE, Advocates for Environmental Human Rights, Survivors Village, Public Interest Law & Advocacy Resource of Coastal Louisiana (PILAR), Families and Friends of Louisiana’s Incarcerated Children (FFLIC), VAYLA, and Women with a Vision.
Now, the U.S. Human Rights Network (USHRN) has compiled the information into a report, Testimonies of Human Rights at Home: Documenting Injustice in the United States. The report and testimony findings were presented in Geneva for the Universal Periodic Review (UPR) of the United States, which also included data from BreakOUT!’s report, We Deserve Better.
