The National Council of the Churches of Christ in the USA (NCC) opposes US withdrawal from the UN Human Rights Council. Over the past year, the United States has made additional unfortunate decisions to withdraw from UNESCO and the Paris Climate Accords. Further, the US has pulled out of NAFTA and the TPP.
US disengagement from its international and treaty obligations is regrettable and alarming. We urge President Trump and other elected leaders to participate in the international community in a constructive manner.
