USAID: International Human Rights Day
In a statement recognizing International Human Rights Day, USAID Acting Deputy Administrator John Barsa discusses USAID’s commitment to human rights, saying, “Promoting and protecting human rights is not only a moral imperative, but also a critical component of America’s national security, because they are essential to any nation’s self-reliance and citizen-responsive governance. … On International Human Rights Day, we take a moment to express our gratitude to those who serve them on the frontlines of the battle for basic human dignity. We continue to call for greater humanitarian access and an end to violence against aid workers and those who defend human rights” (12/10).
