In the coming years, the United States will undergo several human rights 
reviews. In October the United Nations (UN) will review the U.S. 
Government on its human rights progress under the ICCPR (International 
Covenant on Civil and Political Rights). In 2014, the UN will review 
U.S. Government progress under the CERD (Convention on the Elimination 
of All Forms of Racial Discrimination).  In 2015 the U.S. Government 
will undergo its second Universal Periodic Review, which looks at the 
U.S. human rights record with respect to all rights - civil, political, 
economic, social and cultural.


Discussions will cover current concerns related to reproductive rights, 
racial profiling, racial discrimination, worker's rights, and other 
human rights in the United States, and strategies for using 
international human rights tools to support activist advocacy efforts.
