A Deadline and a Headline

First, the deadline:  February 5 is the deadline for submitting a paper/panel proposal to this year's annual conference of the Academic Council on the UN System (ACUNS).  The conference, held in Rome from July 12-14, 2018, will focus on Human Rights, Migration, and Global Governance.   More information is available here

Second, the headline:  Laura Germino, a co-founder of the human rights group Coalition of Immokalee Workers, attended the State of the Union address as the guest of U.S. Representative Lois Frankel.  Germino, who directs CIW's Anti-Slavery Program that combats sexual harassment and abuse, is featured in a video released by Rep. Frankel prior to the event.  Frankel and her guests wore black to the speech in solidarity with the #MeToo movement.
