Defending Human Rights Equally

Created by Mike Pompeo, the State Department’s Commission on Unalienable Rights (CUR) has worked to nationalize, narrow and reinterpret the internationally agreed upon human rights framework. The harmful positions of this commission, which have been espoused throughout the State Department and beyond, include prioritizing religious freedom and property rights at the expense of LGBTQ rights and abortion access, which the commission considers to be “divisive political and social controversies.” The Biden-Harris administration must disband this commission as part of its course correction to defend internationally agreed upon human rights equally.
