Steve Hawkins Interviewed by Democracy Now!

Former Skadden Fellow Steve Hawkins ('89), executive director of Amnesty International USA, appeared on Democracy Now! to discuss the crisis in Ferguson, Missouri, and the organization's unprecedented step of sending a 13-person delegation to monitor the developments there ("'A Human Rights Crisis': In Unprecedented Move, Amnesty International Sends Monitors to Ferguson," Aug. 18). "We sent observers down because there was a need for human rights observers. Clearly there are violations of international human rights law and standards, in terms of how the policing is being done on protests," Steve said.
