NOPSC's Human Rights Campaign

Introduction

We are a Palestinian-led broad-based coalition of social justice and community organizers in New Orleans working to end our city’s complicity in human rights violations, wherever they occur. Our campaign focuses on ending municipal investment in, as well as contracting with companies who violate, or profit from the violation of human rights. We seek to force companies to have to choose between doing business with the city of New Orleans or with countries who violate human rights while at the same time raise awareness about systemic rights violations that affect communities in New Orleans.

Whether it’s mass incarceration, war crimes in Palestine and Hondurus, ICE deportations, or environmental degradation, we seek to create a legislative too to prevent New Orleans contracting with or investing companies whose human rights violations affect the communities of New Orleans.
