Jessica Osorio, Class of '11

Former Student/Alumni

My experience with the HRC during the spring, summer, and fall of 2011 allowed me to gain experience on researching and taking action to advocate for social justice and human rights. I had a few growth spurts that year as the Clinic’s director constructively challenged us to take responsibility for our advocacy work and use multiple levels of pressure on Argentine authorities so that they would fulfill their obligations in Abra Pampa. Through the HRC, I gained the experience I looked for in graduate school, I have developed skills that I will use in years to come as I work to support the rights of peoples that have been marginalized throughout the Americas.
