Presenter: Justin Hansford, Executive Director, Thurgood Marshall Civil Rights Center, Howard University.
Justin Hansford will discuss his experience in community-based legal advocacy and address how he incorporates his practitioner experience into his teaching and scholarship. Hansford worked to empower the Ferguson community through community based legal advocacy. He co-authored the Ferguson to Geneva human rights shadow report and accompanied the Ferguson protesters and Mike Brown’s family to Geneva, Switzerland, to testify at the United Nations. He has served as a policy advisor for proposed post-Ferguson reforms at the local, state, and federal level, testifying before the Ferguson Commission, the Missouri Advisory Committee to the United States Civil Rights Commission, the President’s Task Force on 21st Century Policing, and the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights.
This event is part of a spring webinar series sponsored by the University and College Consortium for Human Rights Education (UCCHRE) and HRE USA.
