FXB Center for Health and Human Rights – Harvard School of Public Health
Year of joining GAAMAC: 2013

The FXB Center for Health and Human Rights at Harvard University uses interdisciplinary approaches to promote equity and dignity for those oppressed by racism, poverty and stigma, nationally and around the world.

The FXB Center is proud to partner with a diverse group of scholars, educators, elected officials, government agencies, nonprofit organizations and members of the international policy community to advance health and human rights, and to show the harmful effects of violations on children.

The mission of GAAMAC provides the FXB Center with a window into the substantive research and policy issues relating to grave violations of human rights, including stigma, hate speech, and oppression of targeted populations. The Center welcomes the opportunities to partner with experts and communities of practice within the GAAMAC network to pursue research and advocacy on these prevalent violations of human rights and humanitarian norms wherever useful and possible.

I joined GAAMAC because I knew that substantial progress on these issues could be accomplished only through governments and communities of practice within nation States.  Through my participation in GAAMAC I have deepened my understanding of how to change minds and influence leaders; how to navigate complex diplomatic considerations; and how to mobilize large groups of people to participate in difficult and rewarding explorations of their own situation and of the challenges we all must surmount at the regional and international level.”
