Professor Tiffany Joseph will discuss the connection between displacement, racial and ethnic relations, the social safety net and its implications for the meaning of citizenship and human rights in the 21st century.
The annual Valerie Gordon Human Rights Lecture celebrates the memory of the late Valerie Gordon ’93, a fierce advocate for human rights in the US and internationally. The lecture features outstanding lawyers, judges, scholars and advocates who share their experiences in advancing human rights.
