Tonight: Lecture about Human Rights, Refugees and Utica

News Today, Here Tomorrow: Utica and the Global Fight for Human Rights is a special lecture taking place at Utica University tonight at 4:30pm. 

Join Shana Pughe Dean '07, translation and training manager from The Center, with special guest speakers for a discussion about how global human rights are impacting you and the community you live in. 

You never know when the person you see on the news today will be your neighbor tomorrow. Living in Utica, also known as the “Town that Loves Refugees," makes this a reality. Utica has welcomed more than 17,000 refugees to the city since 1981. Refugees are individuals who have inherently had their fundamental rights violated: forced to flee because of who they are or what they believe.
