Seventy-six years after World War II, the U.S. and Germany are launching a high-level dialogue on Holocaust issues to discuss global action to combat anti-Semitism and counter Holocaust distortion. We proudly stand together and condemn all forms of anti-Semitism. https://t.co/tuG9PSoA3J

Proud to speak at @UN_HRC’s event on human rights of transgender women & other gender-diverse individuals. Together, we must say with one voice that transgender individuals are entitled to dignity & equity. We must lead by the power of our example – in our work at home & abroad. https://t.co/eovOkG5SKb

I welcome the UK's and EU's sanctions on Burmese individuals and entities. The international community's unified message is clear:​ we will continue ​promoting accountability for the regime to support the aspirations of the Burmese people.

.@StateDept and @USTreasury joined @CanadaFP, @eu_eeas, and @FCDOGovUK to promote accountability for the Lukashenka regime’s egregious abuses, including a forced flight diversion to arrest a journalist, nearly 500 political prisoners, repression, and violence.

As we mark #WorldRefugeeDay, I am reminded of my family’s own history fleeing violence, conflict, and persecution. My great-grandfather fled pogroms in Eastern Europe, my stepmother fled Communism, and my late stepfather survived the Holocaust. I stand #withrefugees. https://t.co/8qgCBk29rT

On this International Day for the Elimination of Sexual Violence in Conflict, the U.S. reaffirms our longstanding commitment to the prevention of, and accountability for conflict-related sexual violence, and empowerment of survivors. The cost of inaction is too high to bear.
