From the Classroom to the Courthouse, Bringing Human Rights Home to the U.S.

Friday, April 17, 2015 12:15 PM - 1:00 PM
Law Common

Clason Speaker Series Margaret Huang, the Chief of Staff and Deputy Executive Director, Campaigns and Programs for Amnesty International USA will present. Huang will explore the growth and increasing sophistication of the domestic human rights movement in the U.S. over the last decade, including understanding its focus on the school to prison pipeline, the problems of racial profiling and mass incarceration, and the recent grassroots mobilization around police accountability. From Ferguson to Staten Island, from Madison to Cleveland, the individual stories of young black men shot by law enforcement have galvanized youth and other activists in a pivotal moment to demand change. Human rights activism is needed to help bridge between grassroots organizing efforts and legal advocacy for state and federal reforms. Lunch will be provided.
