Please join us for a talk with Maria McFarland Sanchez-Moreno, Deputy Washington Director for Human Rights Watch, on human rights in the U.S. under the Trump administration. Ms McFarland Sanchez-Moreno will reflect on the President’s policies that would harm rights protections, and his positions vis-à-vis institutions of law that are essential to the functioning of democracy. She will discuss how Human Rights Watch is responding to these challenges, and consider broader questions arising about the role of the human rights movement today. Lunch will be provided.
