From June 19th to 21st, Organization of American States (OAS) will host its General Assembly in Cancún, Mexico under the banner of "Strengthening Dialogue and Concertation for Prosperity".
While the General Assembly will cover multiple themes, this gathering will be pariticularly relevant given that member states will elect three members of the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights (IACHR) and possibly decide whether or not to increase the budget of the IACHR and the Inter-American Court of Human Rights .
Here at CEJIL, we think it's important to shine the spotlight on the positions held by member States regarding the continent's pressing human rights issues and their impact on the region's residents. Specifically, we want greater transparency and accountability whenever these types of serious decisions are made.
Therefore, we want to invite you to help push our social media campaign: #YOvoto (#Ivote) AG 2017. We have elaborated several graphics and messages to make it easier to join, so that you can use freely through facebook, twitter, and elsewhere.
Share, act, invite other people. Together we can do more! If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact us through Alexandra Mcanarney and Francisca Stuardo.Campaign Materials
