State Launches Humanrights.gov
Following the spirit of President Obama’s Open Government Directive, the State Department last week officially launched humanrights.gov, a new portal for international human rights-related information generated by the federal government.
According to the White House blog, humanrights.gov features content from the State Department, focusing on human rights-related information and understanding of the country’s global engagement. In the future, the site aims to include similar information from partnering federal agencies, including USAID, Health and Human Services, Homeland Security and the Departments of Justice and Labor. The site features reports, press releases, statements, articles, and briefings generated on international human rights concerns.
