Event description
Commemorating the Universal Declaration of Human Rights

About this Event

Each year in December, Long Island Jobs with Justice commemorates the anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights by honoring a champion of human rights right here on Long Island.

To learn more about the Universal Declaration of Human Rights visit: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=36CUlaqmFi4.

This year we will honor the remarkable work of those who fight for and stand with refugees, in honor of Mary Dewar, Board Member of Long Island Jobs with Justice, but also a visionary who has acted as a public health nurse and advocate for over 5 decades.

Our honorees this year are:

Lisa Votino, Community Organizer

Michele Caldera-Kopf, Senior Staff Attorney, Safe Passage

Our keynote address will be delivered by Valerie Wattenberg, attorney and consultant on international human rights and youth (juvenile) justice, who will speak about the social costs of criminalization based on her work and experiences in post-Soviet Russia and the US.

12pm-2pm - Program

2:15pm - Outdoor dedication to "Jesus the Global Refugee" Creche
