Center for Economic and Social Rights, NY
The Center for Economic and Social Rights (CESR) was established in 1993 to promote social justice through human rights. In a world where systemic poverty and inequality deprive so many people of their fundamental right to live in dignity, CESR promotes the human rights to housing, education, health, food, work, and social security.
CESR is working towards a future where economic security, social equality, and political freedom are ensured for all people. CESR promotes this vision by connecting local advocacy to international human rights mechanisms and promoting solutions to poverty and injustice based on economic and social rights.
