Please join NESRI, the Human Rights Institute at Columbia Law School, and other allies for the founding meeting of the Economic, Social, and Cultural Rights (ESCR) Working Group, within the larger Bringing Human Rights Home Lawyers' Network. Everyone engaged in domestic ESCR legal advocacy is welcome to attend, and you may participate in person or via phone.  Lunch will be provided.


The ESCR Working Group hopes to create space for collaboration and convene strategic conversations about where ESCR opportunities lie.  This first meeting will focus on current ESCR efforts in the United States, the movement for a human right to housing as a case study, and brainstorming.  We will circulate reading materials to guide discussion prior to the meeting.
