Doors open at 6:30 pm, where you can join UW undergraduate human rights researchers as they present via poster the outcomes of quarter-long research projects on U.S.human rights foreign policy (or lack thereof). The researchers are happy to answer your questions and discuss the issues.
Come learn more about local human rights organizations, and what’s being done locally, at the City of Seattle’s 15th Annual Human Rights Day celebration. This year’s celebration features Jorge Barón, Executive Director of the Northwest Immigrant Rights Project (NWIRP). Barón will discuss NWIRP’s work to provide comprehensive immigration services to low-income individuals and families in Washington. The evening will also highlight the Seattle Human Rights Commission’s immigrant rights work, and celebrate the 2014 Human Rights Awards for local individuals and organizations. Human Rights Day annually commemorates the December 10, 1948 signing of the UN’s Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
Prior to this 7:30 pm presentation, attend the Health as a Human Right discussion downstairs at 6:00 pm, also in honor of Human Rights Day.
