Human trafficking is a crime against humanity. USFMEP is dedicated to increasing awareness of human trafficking and improving the status of women and children.

Human Rights are universal and all people are entitled to the respect and protection of these rights without discrimination. 
States have a duty to protect the dignity and identity of all human beings and guarantee everyone, without discrimination, respect for their integrity and other rights and fundamental freedoms in order to achieve peaceful existence.
Thanks to the efforts of the Human Rights activists who addressed the gross abuse of certain Human Rights around the world, we have been able to draw inspiration from their work to work together with others to achieve a world where all peoples rights are respected and protected.
Pictured below is USFMEP President Sally Kader with Human Rights Activist Desmond Tutu.

The 69th UN General Assembly general debate officially kicked off today. World leaders from more than 140 countries have gathered together in the UN to discuss major issues of international concern. USA President Barack Obama's speech today centered around counter-extremism and called on states to renew the international system for world peace. USFMEP is positive about the discussion today and seeks to exchange ideas of peace with world leaders in the UN.

On Sunday (Sep. 21st), more than 300,000 people marched on the street of Manhattan, NYC protesting immediate global action on climate change. This People's Climate March, organized by the 350.org Team, was the largest climate mobilization in the history and one of the 2646 climate-change events in 156 countries on Sunday. People expected to send their messages to the UN Climate Summit for discussion, which will be held on Tuesday (Sep. 23rd).
The USFMEP, who commits to international peace and justice, also supports immediate and effective actions of environment protection against climate deterioration, since climate change might lead to scarcity of resources which would cause regional conflicts.

1/5 of the world’s population today is made of young people between the ages of 15 and 25, and in many developing countries, the proportion is even higher. Youth have the highest stake today in ensuring their futures are sustainable. For this, their voices must be heard and taken into account at all decision-making fora. On today's International #DemocracyDay, see how we engage young women in democratic processes: http://owl.li/BwvUo
