York: Human Rights City’s strategy is comprised of the following elements:

Advocacy

  • York: Human Rights City sits on the Human Rights and Equalities Board and other relevant bodies at the City of York Council (CYC). We advise on current issues, and help provide training for staff at CYC and at other relevant local agencies. Please note that we do not provide an individual casework service.

Networking

  • We act as a network for organisations, individuals and businesses concerned with human rights in York. If you have an event you would like to promote, help or advice with an issue or something raised through our advocacy work, please get in touch.

Events

  • We hold a range of public events, from our annual Human Rights Culture and Film Festival, annual Human Rights Indicator meeting to public talks and workshops. Take a look at our events section for more details.

Research

  • York: Human Rights City helps facilitate research on human rights issues in York and beyond. Past projects include improving hate crime reporting processes and assessing the North Yorkshire Police’s rights based approach. We continue our work on human rights indicators for York.
