"If you care about human rights work, then prisons in America really are the belly of the beast."
-Glenn E. Martin
In discussing people caught up in the prison system today, Glenn E. Martin urges us in his inspiring and thought-provoking keynote address to re-humanize people in the system and to challenge the hypocrisy of a system that locks away people who are the result of the failure of all our other systems. He shares his excitement about how the human rights framework can help provide shared values, tenets, and vision. Mr. Martin was a keynote speaker at the USHRN biannual conference ADVANCING HUMAN RIGHTS 2013: Dignity. Justice. Action. The conference was held in Atlanta, Georgia, on December 6-8, 2013.
It was an honor to have Glenn E. Martin address our 2013 biannual national conference.
