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. In addition to volunteering in the DMV area throughout the year, AHR hosts an Alternative Winter Break in New Orleans and an Alternative Spring Break in the Navajo Nation.
