The success of Meiklejohn Civil Liberties Institute and the Human Rights Reporting Project depend on the support and involvement of people dedicated to protecting and ensuring human rights in the United States. Many people have helped to carry the message to their co-workers, clients, students, friends and to judges and government officials: that the people of the United States demand that their government, at all levels, respect and ensure the human rights and fundamental freedoms set forth in U. S. domestic and treaty law.

Human Rights Now! is MCLI's quarterly publication to over 2000 readers on the most important and little known aspects of the movement for human rights and peace law in the United States and how people can get connected to this movement in the U.S. and around the world. The newsletter welcomes brief reports on projects readers are working on, especially stories of successes — however large or small. Volunteers are needed to help mail out the copies at end of February, May, August, and November. Send an email to if you can help.
