CLIHHR will host Diana Kearney for a lunchtime lecture on the Administration's migration policies. Strategic litigation efforts across the US and Mexico are combating policies that strip migrants of their human and refugee rights. We will survey cases protecting these rights, including challenges to the "remain in Mexico" policy, family separation, and expedited deportations without due process. In addition, we will examine how civil society groups are coordinating efforts throughout North and Central America to protect migrants.

Diana Kearney is a Legal and Shareholder Advocacy Advisor at Oxfam America, where she focuses on corporate accountability, land rights, refugee rights, and related businesses' human rights concerns. She was a Visiting Instructor of Clinical Law and Telford Taylor Teaching Fellow at Cardozo Law's Benjamin B. Ferencz Human Rights and Atrocity Prevention Clinic from 2016-2018.
