  • Date: Sunday, February 22, 2015
  • Time: 3:00pm4:00pm
  • Location: Sanctuary

Across the country, localities are adopting and implementing human rights norms, often in the face of federal ambivalence. Martha Davis, a Professor at Northeastern University School of Law, co-directs the school’s Program on Human Rights and the Global Economy, and will speak about the challenges and opportunities faced when local governments in the U.S. and internationally engage with human rights. She is co-author of the forthcoming textbook, Human Rights Advocacy in the U.S., and co-editor of Bringing Human Rights Home, a critically acclaimed work chronicling the U.S. human rights movement.
The lecture is free and will be followed by a reception.

The First Congregational Church, through its Board of Mission & Action, is a sponsor of the Berkshire Human Rights Speaker Series. For more information, contact Madonna Meagher at (413) 528-6842 or
