My Passion for this Big Idea

My passion is to help those individuals who are being exploited and dehumanized, specifically at-risk migrants.

We need to understand how families, communities and the economy are affected when at-risk migrants are deported and ripped from their families and communities.

As a law professor, I use my expertise to fight for equality –– for those who are entitled to the pursuit of a better life through migration to the United States. We need to understand how families, communities and the economy are affected when at-risk migrants are deported and ripped from their families and communities.

The overarching point of the Global Human Rights Big Idea is to recognize that all of these people –– whether at-risk migrants or refugees, or those suffering displacement or the risk of genocide –– deserve a basic level of individual human rights. My passion is to fight for those people and to educate the next generation of leaders who will continue to protect these rights for all individuals.
