Email activites(at)uumontgomery.org. Also watch our Facebook Group for social updates.

DRUM BEAT 21 is a special National Gathering of the US Human Rights Network Sept. 1-3, 2021 (Virtual) with a focus on human rights including economic, social, cultural, civil, political, sexual, and environmental rights.

- Deepen understanding and vocabulary of human rights for your social justice campaign,
- Elevate with grassroots movements successfully leveraging international law and accountability mechanisms for local remedies,
- Acknowledge the lessons, challenges, and champions of the 3 years since our last convening,
- Prepare to bring human rights home with updates and maps to the latest inroads of UN formations and activity towards US compliance with its human rights obligations.
Registration is free. Donations are welcomed.
