ABA's Policy Efforts in D.C. and Around the World

Thomas M Susman and Aaron Schildhaus

For instance, recently the ABA has issued statements in support of human rights defenders in Hong Kong, treatment of minorities in China, criticism of the treatment of the Black community in the US.

When considering a new policy statement on international issues, the ABA funnels policy statement proposals through its International Policy Coordinating Committee.
