Communities have the opportunity to submit a report directly to the UN to spotlight and address local human rights challenges, as part of the UPR process. The American Friends Service Committee (AFSC) and the United Nations Association of the National Capital Area (UNA-NCA) are collaborating, in partnership with other organizations, to submit a report to the United Nations on human rights in the DC area. The purpose of this survey is to identify DC’s most important human rights issues to highlight in our UPR submission.
In late summer, AFSC and UNA-NCA will host a series of roundtables on the priority issues identified by this survey. Information collected during these roundtables will be synthesized in our UPR report.
If you are interested in learning more about DC’s UPR process and receiving updates about the roundtable series, please include your email at the end of this survey (for a chance to win a $25 Visa gift card) or contact Rachel Bergsieker at email@example.com or 202-544-0324.
Your participation in this survey is voluntary. The survey will take approximately 5 minutes. Responses to the survey will be stored confidentially by AFSC and identifying information (email addresses) will be kept separate from question and answers.
