Lenni Benson, Executive Director of the Safe Passage Project in New York will give a talk titled "Unaccompanied Minors from Central America and Special Immigrant Juvenile Status." In 2014, nearly 70,000 children from Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador arrived in the United States, with many teenagers fleeing gang violence. This event will focus much on the response under the U.S. immigration system to this crisis, and will expose students to human rights work and issues in a domestic context. Co-sponsored by the International Human Rights Clinic, Children's Law Clinic, Center for International and Comparative Law, Duke Human Rights Center at the Kenan Institute for Ethics, Duke Human Rights Center at the Franklin Humanities Institute, the International Law Society and the Human Rights Law Society. Lunch will be provided. For more information, or to RSVP, please contact Ali Prince at email@example.com.
