Human Rights:  Ideas & Action
September 2016

Next week, the Human Rights Program welcomes to campus Jill Anderson, co-author of Los Otros Dreamers, a community-published anthology of stories and photos about the experience of twenty-six youth returning or being deported to Mexico after having grown up in the United States.

Jill will make a public keynote presentation about the anthology and broader project on Wednesday, September 21, 7 pm at the McNamara Alumni Center (A.I. Johnson Great Room) on the East Bank of campus. A reception open to all will precede the keynote, beginning at 5:30 pm. We hope to see you there!
