Students travel all over the world on behalf of Human Rights Clinic

During the fall semester of 2013, eight students travelled on behalf of the Human Rights Clinic.  The Clinic sent three students to Brownsville, Texas to visit the U.S.-Mexico border, three students to Panama, and two students to Argentina.

The students who visited Brownsville and the U.S.-Mexico border went there to meet with (among others) Dr. Margo Tamez, a respected professor and Lipan Apache.  The students gathered information on the discriminatory nature of the wall built along the border and its effects on indigenous/Native-American communities in the area.  The result of the research will be presented to the United Nations Committee against Racial Discrimination.
