Last Meeting of the Year: Human Rights Day

Thanks to our PR committee for putting on the last meeting of the year on Tuesday, December 12th to celebrate Human Rights day, which was Sunday, December 10th. We hosted Barbara Frey, director of the Human Rights Program here at the U and the former Executive Director for the Minnesota Advocates for Human Rights, one of the largest U.S.-based international human rights organizations. Her experiences working at the UN and as human rights lawyer were inspiring and relevant to our members, who got to enjoy a nice study break from finals.

For more information about Human Rights Day, please see the slideshow that the PR committee made for the meeting introduction. If you're interested in getting involved in human rights on campus, check out the pamphlet that our new MSA Liaison, Katie Szarkowicz, made for the event.

Thanks for a great semester, guys!
