Jamil Dakwar is one of the most important advocates in human rights advocacy and in holding the United States accountable for its international obligations. I first started working with him through the U.S. Human Rights Network ICCPR Taskforce around 2014. I have seen his leadership in our civil society efforts in the United States and dedication in pushing for more human rights protections.
