Human rights review team visits Alabama

Alabamians played an important role in measuring how the United States is meeting its human rights obligations as a review team visited the state on April 22. The Birmingham event was one of 11 such meetings being held across the country this spring. The public consultations are part of the Universal Periodic Review (UPR) conducted every four years to assess how effectively United Nations member countries are fulfilling the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, adopted in 1948, and subsequent human rights treaties. This is the first UPR of the United States.
