Policy Statement- The Protection of Human Rights
In light of resolutions 422, 464, 473, and 495, and given ADA's long-standing policy to protect human rights around the world, ADA calls for the ratification of various U.N. international human rights agreements. These agreements include, but are not limited to, the Covenant on Economic, Social, and Cultural rights, the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, and the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women. In addition, ADA calls on Congress to pass Senate Resolution 888, The Genocide Accountability Act.
