Campaign for US Government to Develop a National Action Plan on Business and Human Rights

On 5 August 2014, the International Corporate Accountability Roundtable (ICAR) launched an official campaign site and public petition calling on the United States Government to develop a National Action Plan on Business and Human Rights.

Campaign site:

The United States is home to major corporations that negatively impact human rights both domestically and abroad. The ICAR campaign calls on the Obama administration to commit to developing a credible, rights-oriented plan for how the US Government will take action on the various national and international commitments it has made on this issue.

Please sign the petition and share the campaign site.
