Report on the State of Human Rights in DC
The State of Human Rights in the District of Columbia as a Human Rights City, is a report on the observance of human rights in Washington, DC.
The City Council of the District of Columbia declared Washington, DC a Human Rights City in 2008 after a campaign initiated by the American Friends Service Committee's DC Peace and Economic Justice Program and People's Movement for Human Rights Education, the campaign was supported by more than 20 community organizations. On May 26, 2011, the Steering Committee of DC Human Rights People's Movement created a process to develop an annual report on the human rights status of District residents. This is the first such report.
