This year's annual Human Rights in the U.S. Symposium/CLE will explore the relevance of human rights norms in efforts to advance racial justice and address historical and ongoing racism, discrimination, and intolerance. The day will highlight ways to ensure dignity, equality, and accountability in advocacy and decision-making. Speakers will examine strategies to shape effective remedies and redress, including reparations where rights are violated, drawing from international, national, and local examples.
