Human Rights Challenges Facing the Obama Administration"

Dr. Schulz served as executive director of Amnesty International from 1994 to 2006. He is known as an outspoken voice against the death penalty and supporter of the rights of women, gays, lesbians, and people of color. He remains an instrumental activist in shaping policy to emancipate millions from tyranny and terror. Recounting his experiences as an activist and the themes from his book, In Our Own Best Interests: How Defending Human Rights Benefits Us All, Schulz proposes that the United States must fully support and embrace human rights worldwide and at home.
