John McCain Human Rights Commission Would be Established by Sinema-Backed Bipartisan Resolution

Feb 27, 2019

WASHINGTON – Arizona senior Senator Kyrsten Sinema today joined a bipartisan group of senators in introducing a resolution to establish the John S. McCain III Human Rights Commission in the Senate. The resolution formalizes the existing Senate Human Rights Caucus—of which Sinema is a member—as a Congressional body dedicated to upholding human rights around the world.
“John McCain was an Arizona hero and a champion for human rights across the globe. He fiercely promoted the dignity and rights of all people, and his leadership still profoundly inspires me. I am honored to support a human rights commission named for John McCain as a fitting tribute to his legacy,” said Sinema.
Sinema is a member of the Senate Human Rights Caucus chaired by Senator Chris Coons (Del.) and Senator Thom Tillis (N.C.). The resolution introduced today authorizes the commission to formally conduct Senate work promoting and protecting human rights across the world.
