NAACP: Michael Brown Shooting 'Front and Center' at the United Nations

NAACP: Michael Brown Shooting 'Front and Center' at the United Nations

U.S. civil rights advocates aired their concerns about the recent Michael Brown shooting to the United Nations in Geneva, according to a press call from the organizations on Wednesday.

According to Shelton, Trayvon Martin’s mother Sybrina Fulton and Jordan Davis’s father Ron Davis told their stories about losing their teenage children in shootings in each of the pre-briefings of the process.

The group of activists presented to a U.N. panel in Geneva, Switzerland, documenting their concerns of U.S. compliance with the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Racial Discrimination (CERD) treaty.

Hillary also pointed out that U.N. delegates at the hearing made a point of asking the U.S. delegation about African-Americans being “disportionately targeted” by law enforcement.

Shelton praised Attorney General Eric Holder and President Obama for responding quickly to the crisis, raising its national profile.
