We have been waiting for this moment — an opportunity to roll back the assaults on human rights that were a hallmark of the Trump era. 2021 could be a year of momentous opportunity for human rights, if we act now.
Join us in urging President-Elect Biden to put human rights at the top of his agenda. We’re collecting signatures and will deliver them to Biden’s team.
Amnesty USA has created a comprehensive report of key 11 U.S. domestic and international policy recommendations* for the incoming Biden administration — a list of changes he can enact through the federal government’s pre-existing powers and authorities, like ending detention and the separation of children and their families seeking safety.
U.S. presidents have incredible authority to develop and execute policies that affect human rights. But to get anything done in Washington takes intensive public pressure. Tell President-Elect Biden: take on a bold human rights agenda and begin righting the wrongs of the past.
