Summary: H.Res.212 — 107th Congress (2001-2002)All Bill Information (Except Text)
Encourages all participants in the United Nations World Conference Against Racism, Racial Discrimination, Xenophobia, and Related Intolerance (WCAR) to seize this opportunity to tackle the scourges of racism, xenophobia, sexism, religious intolerance, slavery, and other forms of discrimination.
Passed House amended (07/30/2001)
Recognizes that efforts to address these prejudices should occur within a global framework and without reference to specific regions, countries, or present-day conflicts.
Urges: (1) the participants to utilize WCAR to mitigate, rather than aggravate, racial, ethnic, and regional tensions; and (2) WCAR to focus on concrete steps that may be taken to address gross human rights violations that were motivated by racially and ethnically based animus and on devising strategies to help eradicate such intolerance.
Commends the efforts of the Government of South Africa in hosting WCAR.
