Letter Calls on Kerry to Consider Candidates with Strong Human Rights Backgrounds

Freedom House sent a letter to Secretary of State John Kerry asking him to consider candidates with strong human rights backgrounds when he makes appointments to senior positions at the State Department.

As Freedom House president David J. Kramer wrote, “appointing senior officials who are experienced in promoting human rights and democracy and working in concert with local civil society will enhance America’s standing abroad and advance our interests.”
