ANNOUNCEMENT:

HRA announces that on Tuesday, October 13, 2020, at 5:00 p.m., it will sponsor an important panel discussion of international human rights advocacy regarding racism in the U.S., to be led by Benjamin G. Davis, professor of law at University of Toledo College of Law.

Following the death of George Floyd under a police officer’s knee in Minneapolis, human rights activists and Mr. Floyd’s family urged the United Nations Human Rights Council to investigate police brutality and racial discrimination. The Council responded, and on June 17, 2020, it unanimously set up an inquiry into systemic racism and violent policing against people of African descent.

The panel discussion will address this “George Floyd Resolution” (and its future implementation) as an example of how international and domestic law intersect and now shape the world of human rights advocacy. The event will begin with presentations by a panel of international human rights law specialists, led by Professor Davis. HRA invites all interested persons to participate in a discussion following the panel.

This event is free, and Zoom login information is listed below:
