The Post-2015 Human Rights Caucus
The Post-2015 Human Rights Caucus is a diverse coalition of development, environment, trade union, feminist and human rights organizations worldwide. Members share the common goal of seeing human rights principles and standards meaningfully reflected in the entire post-2015 sustainable development agenda: the goals & targets, financing, implementation, monitoring and review processes.
Formed in 2013, the Caucus core membership consists of around 80 organizations, although its first joint statement was endorsed by 350 groups. The co-convenors of the Caucus are CESR, Amnesty International, and the Association for Women's Rights in Development (AWID). Organizations interested in joining can contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
