City humans rights action team formed to united AHR programs
by Gaby B. Keith / PIO

The city government has established a Human Rights Action Team (HRAcT) to ensure that its offices operate in a human rights-based manner pursuant to Joint Memorandum Circular 1, s. 2014 of the Department of the Interior and Local Government and Commission on Human Rights.

The circular calls for the mainstreaming of human rights through the rule of law and access to justice at the level of provinces, cities, municipalities, and barangays. It defines human rights as a person’s supreme, inherent, and inalienable right to life, dignity, and self-development.

The city’s HRAct was formed during a two-day capacity building on human rights action center and rule of law seminar held recently by the CHR regional office under Director Romel Daguimol.

Heading the team is the city administrator as chair and the legal officer as co-chair. Members are heads of the social welfare, planning, health, information office, and police human rights affairs officer; city schools superintendent, barangay human rights affairs office association president, and at least one representative from civil society organizations and non-government organizations or people’s organizations that advocate human rights.

The HRAcT is tasked to develop and implement the  human rights plan of the local government unit; propose to the city council the integration of human rights programs, projects, and activities in the annual budget appropriation; recommend appropriate legislations to the city council’s human rights committee; use available resources for human rights promotion activities; spearhead and coordinate the implementation of human rights programs, projects, and activities;  and serve as a hub for access to justice network.
