Monitor

HRP monitors local and federal government compliance with regional and global human rights standards.

Our Report Card serves as a tool for education and for action, that can advance the use of a human rights framework in policy evaluation and advocacy.

In 2008, the Human Rights Project launched the first and only annual assessment of  New York City Council members’ legislative records across a range of human rights issues including housing, workers’ rights, health, criminal justice, disability rights, government accountability and voting rights. The intent was to advance equality of New Yorkers living in poverty, particularly communities of color and women.

The annual New York City Council Human Rights Report Card is the only publication of its kind: comprehensively evaluating Council members’ legislative records across a range of human rights issues including housing rights, criminal and juvenile justice, government accountability and more. It is a tool for education and action that equips New Yorkers with relevant information to hold the Council accountable and to demand higher standards of service and protection.
