Philanthropy Club to Host Guest Speaker from Human Rights Watch

Cassandra Hamdam will speak about her work with Human Rights Watch at the next meeting of the LIM College Philanthropy Club.

Human Rights Watch is a nonprofit, nongovernmental human rights organization made up of roughly 400 staff members around the globe. Each year, Human Rights Watch publishes more than 100 reports and briefings on human rights conditions in some 90 countries. With the leverage this brings, Human Rights Watch meets with governments, the United Nations, regional groups, financial institutions, and corporations to press for changes in policy and practice that promote human rights and justice around the world.

Cassandra is currently pursuing a Master of Science degree in Global Studies and International Relations with a concentration in Conflict Resolution at Northeastern University. During her undergraduate studies at the State University of New York at Albany she served as a mentor at the United States Center for Refugees and Immigrants.
