Most Americans would agree that there is an alarming rate of human rights violation in America. While U.S. and international news organizations report on these occurrences every day and help spread awareness, it is equally important that steps be taken to put an end to needless suffering.

The Common Law Office of Mrs. Tamah Jada Clark (#TCLO) has made contact with the United Nations (U.N.) to make the international community aware that 1) there are Americans who realize there is a problem, and 2) there are Americans who want to see the situation improve.

It is important that this request for assistance has come from an American, because the international policy of “non-intervention” prevents other nations and organizations from intervening in the matter, without being properly invited to do so in accordance with current law-based protocols.

The United Nations (U.N.) is an international peace-keeping organization. It was founded in 1945 to maintain international peace and security by, for example, creating the conditions to allow peace to hold and flourish. One of the ways it does this is through the U.N.’s Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR).

The OHCHR represents the world’s commitment to respect for human dignity and its has a unique mandate from the international community to promote and protect all human rights.

“The term “human rights” was mentioned seven times in the UN’s founding Charter, making the promotion and protection of human rights a key purpose and guiding principle of the Organization. In 1948, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights brought human rights into the realm of international law. Since then, the Organization has diligently protected human rights through legal instruments and on-the-ground activities.”

The Common Law Office of Mrs. Tamah Jada Clark (#TCLO) has been working with the United Nations (U.N.) for the purpose of requesting assistance through the OHCHR with protecting Americans’ human rights. In May of 2017, TCLO received correspondence from the OHCHR indicating that the initial complaint has been received, but more information, documentation, and proof is needed.
