Not only will we be hosting Marisso Sow, but we have decided to have a board mingle, get active before the event!
NOW is your chance to ask the board any questions about joining UPF! Not sure what committee you’d like to join? Ask us on the 20th!
Marissa 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 will reflect on her work with New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio’s administration, which resulted in the public espousal of human rights-focused stances as to foreign affairs matters and the unveiling of major policy initiatives consistent with progressive realizations of social and economic human rights and enforcement of political and civil rights.
