Realizing Rights: Action Updates
The final months of our work at Realizing Rights produced a number of important results which are presented in this, our final Action Update. On 14 December 2010, in New York, Realizing Rights staff, partners and supporters gathered to celebrate the culmination of our joint endeavors and look ahead to the opportunities for new beginnings.
As Realizing Rights approaches its planned end in December 2010, we know there is so much still to be done to realize human rights for all ??? and that our partners, and the programs and institutions we have helped launch, will continue to make the case for why human rights matter.
