Thank you for joining us. From Monday, April 19th to Friday, April 23rd, we will be hosting the inaugural rendition of the University of Connecticut's annual Human Rights Symposium. As a land-grant and flagship institution, the University of Connecticut takes great pride in upholding its responsibility to the community of the Nutmeg State. Therefore, we invite students, faculty, and the public to join our events free of cost to create a virtual space for dialogue, information sharing, and progress toward human rights for all, from the global to local scales. Each day will feature a designated focus with corresponding student-organized events. Among these events will be sessions for free legal advice, interactive workshops, town-hall-style conversations, and panels that encourage intersectional and intergenerational consideration of many of our community's most pressing concerns. We invite the people of Connecticut to join us as we work to move forward together.

In this presentation, William Tong will give a 30 minute talk about his professional history and work with immigration. View the event here: https://hrtsymposium.rso.uconn.edu/livestream/
