Toolkit for Local Resolutions Calling for Senate/Presidential Ratification of the International Covenant of Economic, Social and Cultural Rights (ICESCR)

This is a packet of information and a suggested/model resolution for human rights activists/Guild Chapters, including law school chapters, to use in their local jurisdictions to promote a HUMAN RIGHTS framework for collective/governmental responsibility for peoples’ health care, housing, education, jobs and the safety net that allows people to live a dignified existence in an unfair economic system. The current economic and jobs and housing meltdown and local governments’ inability to deal with it only makes this initiative more timely.
