Action for Human Rights (AHR)

Action for Human Rights (AHR) is a student organization that brings together students and faculty to promote awareness of domestic and international human rights issues and their legal implications. It provides a forum for a balance of views and discussion about different topics. AHR's main goal is to encourage the WCL community to learn about different human rights issues and to take action. This year we will be doing volunteer work in D.C. throughout the year in addition to volunteering in New Orleans over winter break.
