NESRI Speaks Out in Solidarity with LA CAN

On December 10th, International Human Rights Day, the National Social & Economic Rights Initiative (NESRI) released this statement:

NESRI Human Rights Day Statement

NESRI is a close partner of LA CAN and we are working together to ensure the human right to housing is upheld in the U.S.  We appreciate their ongoing solidarity and support for LA CAN and our members.

Additionally, NESRI coordinates the Campaign to Restore National Housing Rights.  Campaign members in New Orleans and Los Angeles have submitted formal appeals to the Special Rapporteur on the situation of human rights defenders due to the escalating criminalization and retaliation against those speaking out against injustice.
