Civil liberties are human rights

UUSC upholds individual freedoms in the United States and abroad. In collaboration with diverse coalitions, UUSC works to stop violations of civil liberties — like racial and religious profiling, torture, and more. Most recently, UUSC has focused on protecting the rights of asylum seekers and refugees, including torture survivors, in the U.S. immigration process.
