The USHRN September membership call took place on September 12, 2019. Several USHRN members presented their work on the call including: Ron Davis (The Jordan Davis Foundation), P. Moses (Black Lives Matter Memphis), Nyasa Hendrix (Black Women’s Blueprint), and Jamila Flomo and Amanda Suarez (University of Miami Law School Human Rights Center). If you missed the call but would like to hear updates from these and other members, check out the recording link here. For more information on each of the presenters, click here.


We encourage our members to connect and build with presenters and their organizations, each of whom are doing important work across the US. Please find the contact information of members on the call who would like to collaborate with you at the bottom of this article. We look forward to updating you on our burgeoning work with various members that evolved through the September membership call.
