Lecture: Human Rights in New York City: A Local to Global Perspective

Marissa Jackson Sow will deliver a presentation on the expansion of human rights discourse within American politics, and how this expansion has mobilized the Left, ushering new rights-focused policymakers into elected office and influencing local, state, and national policies.

Marissa Jackson Sow is an attorney and scholar specializing in human rights, the law of diplomacy, and racial, gender, and environmental justice. She will join the Open Society Foundation as a Fellow in 2020, where she will document and amplify the human rights activism of Black women in the United States in the post-Obama era.

When: November 20th, 19:00-21:00
