On the occasion of the first session of the newly established UN Permanent Forum on the People of African Descent (UNPFPAD), the Center for Constitutional Rights traveled to Geneva to build solidarity with comrades from around the world committed to helping advance the mandate of the forum. In this episode, our Executive Director, Vince Warren, has a conversation with Gay McDougall, member of the United Nations Committee on the Elimination of Racial Discrimination and former Special Rapporteur of Minorities, and Amara Enyia, Chair of Civil Society Working Group for PFPAD. Gay and Amara discuss their experiences while serving in different UN groups and the significance these groups have to advancing racial equity around the world.
