Please accept these suggestions in the spirit in which they’re given. Like you, I think human rights are absolutely essential to the four pillars of engagement and responsibility you outlined in your speech at the opening of the United Nations General Assembly in September. I hope you will use your acceptance speech on Dec. 10 to recommit yourself and your administration to meeting America’s human rights obligations both at home and abroad.
