Immigrant Rights DOCUMENTS

I had always hoped that this land might become a safe and agreeable asylum to the virtuous and persecuted part of mankind, to whatever nation they might belong.

~George Washington

 

Although free movement may seem to be a fairly minor and obvious human right, it actually is one of the most basic rights. Without the right to leave one’s home, a person may suffer many kinds of persecution and human rights abuses. All people retain their universal human rights no matter where in the world they may be, and every government must ensure that its laws, policies, and practices do not lead to abuse of immigrants' human rights.

HRE USA is a project of The Center for Transformative Action

The core values of HRE USA and its partner organizations include transparency and critical thinking skills. We believe that human rights--and human rights education--belong to everyone, and that the full realization of human rights means that access to human rights education materials must never be conditioned upon the subscription to any particular religious faith, ideology, political affiliation, or membership in any particular organization and that any organizational connections should be openly acknowledged.
