Power to Inspire-Center For Civil and Human Rights

I always love when I have an opportunity to the Center for Civil and Human Rights.  As the Center approaches their one year anniversary from opening it’s doors in 2014 they have scheduled some wonderful programs and activities to commemorate this moment. This week I was privileged to photograph their Human Rights Summit and hear passionate discussions on environmental health and justice, human trafficking and the intersection/ influence of the student movement of the 1960s and modern day movements, protests and riots.   onederland_blog_PROOFING_07
