Response to the Trump Administration from the Human Rights Center

Many of the Trump Administration’s recent directives and pronouncements pose serious challenges to the enforcement of international human rights and humanitarian law. The Human Rights Center at UC Berkeley stands with students, academics, journalists, activists, and others worldwide who are resisting these assaults on truth and justice and are working to strengthen the rule of law. We denounce any attempts to breed fear and intolerance. And we will defend those who are targeted on the basis of their ethnicity, religion, gender, sexual orientation, immigration status, national identity, or otherwise.
