On February 4, 2016, The American Human Rights Council (AHRC-USA) conducted one of its Capitol Days in Lansing, Michigan. AHRC’s board members and volunteers, Atty. Isaac Robinson, Ms. Elisa Grubbs, Mr. Ibrahim Aljahim and AHRC’s Executive Director Imad Hamad visited the State of Michigan House of Representatives and met with several members of the House to introduce AHRC’s mission, concerns and interests related to the state of Human Rights in Michigan and the nation.
The visit helped bring further exposure about the AHRC’s important work and advocacy on behalf of human rights including the current water crisis in Flint and Detroit, the dangerous ramifications of the hazardous radioactive material disposal in several neighborhoods, and the state of Michigan’s criminal justice system.
“AHRC is a strong believer in constructive dialogue addressing human rights concerns with our elected officials and law-makers at all levels,” said Imad Hamad, AHRC’s Executive Director. “As a strong advocate for human rights, AHRC is very committed to creating awareness and support regarding quality of life for all,” continued Hamad.
