FIU Professor Joins Amnesty International for Event on Global Refugee Crisis

Come join us for the opening night preview of "People on the Move" - a dynamic showcase of artwork as part of Amnesty International's Art for Amnesty program. This will be a lively and engaging reception with local artists, changemakers, activists, and community members. There will also be a discussion panel portion of the evening, with opportunities for attendees to learn and ask questions.

The purpose of this event is to bring awareness and discussion of human rights and social justice issues to members of the community in Miami through art. The theme of this event will focus on refugee and migrant rights. With the ongoing global refugee crisis, and extensive influence of immigrant populations in Miami, this theme would be relevant and accessible for many members of the community. The discussion panel will feature experts on a number of global regions affected by the refugee crisis.

Artists include:Rafael Barros, Home Eleven, Jason Cole, Pedro Rivero, Delphine Lebourgeois and others.

Panelists include:Lisa Konczal, Carlos MarĂ­n, Dr. Eric Lob, Devorah Sasha, and Jessica Shulruff Schneider, Esq.
