Urban Justice Center Webinar: NYC Council Human Rights Report Card

On Tuesday, March 25th, the Human Rights Project at the Urban Justice Center will release its sixth annual New York City Council Human Rights Report Card The Report Card is the only comprehensive assessment of New York City Council members' legislative records across a range of human rights areas including housing, workers' rights, justice, health, disability rights, government accountability, and voting rights. It brings a human rights framework to the examination of City Council, which has the power and responsibility to address the inequities that plague New York City. It is a tool to hold Council members, and the Council as a legislative body, accountable and to help us move toward a City in which all have their human rights fulfilled.

Please join us on March 25, 2014 at 3:00 P.M. EST for an hour-long webinar on this important publication. We look forward to your participation! The Report Card is only as strong as its audience.

The hour-long webinar will discuss:
★ The human rights framework, including the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women (CEDAW);
★ Report Card methodology;
★ The top scoring Council members in 2013;
★ The legislative trends of human rights bills;
★ The implications of Council's land use and budget work on human rights.
