Racial and Ethnic Discrimination in the United States
The Status of Compliance by the US government with the International
This report was organized by The World Organization Against Torture USA (WOAT). It takes a close look at the Status of Compliance by the U.S. government with the International Convention on the Elimination of all forms of Racial Discrimination. The report was compiled on behalf of an informal working group of non-governmental civil rights and social justice groups.
The World Organization Against Torture USA is a non-profit human rights monitoring, reporting and advocacy group, and a U.S. affiliate of the international World Organization Against Torture (OMCT), a worldwide network of over 200 human rights organizations, each focusing attention on their own government's compliance with international human rights standards, and a member of the SOS Torture Network, an electronic information clearinghouse circulating case alerts involving major torture related abuses worldwide.
Minnesota Advocates for Human Rights contributed to this report by authoring the chapter on Racial Disparities in Infant Mortality Rates in the USA and contributing to the section on Elimination of Affirmative Action as a Method for Overcoming the Consequences of Past Discrimination and the section on Homelessness.
