For the first time since the United Nations was created in 1947, the United States lost its seat on the Human Rights Commission. Then a deal was struck and it quickly regained it. On the floor of the General Assembly, the United States receives constant criticism for violations of human rights within its own borders. On this program, we take a look at human rights in the United States.

Featuring:

Keith McHenry, co-founder of Food Not Bombs; Robert Norse Kahn, activist; Karen Parker, attorney specializing in human rights;Brian Burdekin, special adviser on the National Human Rights Institutions to the U.N. High Commissioner; Jamie Fellner, director of the U.S program for Human Rights Watch; Rose Braz, Critical Resistance
