Human Rights Conference: Without Borders?
Saturday, October 5th 8:15 am - 4:30 pm
Carrboro Century Center
On Saturday October 5th, the HRC is organizing a conference titled Without Borders? We want to challenge the day- to- day boundaries and tackle questions such as, "Are there some borders we may want to abolish? Some we may wish to preserve? Transgress? Are there some borders we wish to finesse? Is solidarity possible across our diversities?
