Senate SubCom Urged to Keep Up Good Work on Human Rights
Human rights leaders urge the U.S. Senate Committee on the Judiciary's Subcommittee on Human Rights and the Law to continue its important work in the next Congress.
December 9, 2010
Created in 2007, the U.S. Senate Committee on the Judiciary’s Subcommittee on Human Rights and the Law has been integral in addressing human rights through hearings and legislation. It has brought much needed attention to the legal framework of key issues such as human trafficking, drug enforcement, internet freedom, child prostitution, corporate responsibility, equal treatment for women, sexual violence in conflict, and accountability for genocide and crimes against humanity.
Leaders of human rights organizations call on the subcommittee to continue its important work in the 112th Congress.
