The UNA-USA ICERD Shadow Report

The United Nations Association of the United States of America (UNA-USA) submitted the UNA-USA ICERD Shadow Report to the UN Committee Reviewing the U.S. Periodic Report under the International Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Racial Discrimination. The report covers issues of racial profiling, justice, hate, homelessness, health, climate, indigenous concerns, amongst others, and presents questions for consideration, along with recommendations, to address the problem.

The DEAI Task Force thanks UNA members who participated in these discussions. We express gratitude to Joshua Cooper, Teta Banks, London Bell, Tatiana Scantlebury, and Angela Zhong for producing the shadow report and invite you to review the findings.
