Please join the Roosevelt House Public Policy Institute and the Hunter College Human Rights Program for a program with distinguished speakers commemorating the International Bill of Human Rights 50 years after it was codified into international law, and exploring the prospects for preserving human rights principles in a challenging global political environment.  The panelists are:

  • Keith Harper, Former US Ambassador to the UN Human Rights Council (2014 – 2017)
  • Frances Raday, Prof. of Law, Hebrew  University; Special Rapporteur, UN Human Rights Council
  • Tawanda Mutasah, Senior Director of Law and Policy, Amnesty International

The event also celebrates the new photojournalism exhibition at Roosevelt House: “Our Rights, Our Freedoms, Always: Celebrating Human Rights Through the Camera Lens” (see images below).  The display of 29 large, high-quality color photographs, provided by the UN Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR), provokes discussion and interpretation of the principles in the International Bill of Human Rights through vivid images from around the world.

This program is made possible through the generous support of Anthony Stepanski.
