About Human Rights:
Center Director: Gustie Owens
Contact Information: firstname.lastname@example.org
The Human Rights Center strives to find policy solutions that guarantee essential rights and freedoms for all persons, while working to expand the reach and acceptance of human rights as a normative framework. Last year, the Human Rights Center spearheaded the BarnardNoAramark campaign, successfully organizing a boycott and campus-wide campaign to encourage Barnard to switch dining providers due to Aramark’s record of human rights abuses and investment in mass incarceration. During the 2019-2020 school year, Human Rights Center Director Gustie Owens hopes to move the human rights towards thinking about housing equity in the local area. The Center will engage the local community to gauge the concerns of current and former residents impacted by Columbia’s role as a landlord.
