Wasserstein Public Interest Fellow’s advocacy in action

A recent New York Times article documents the story of Nigerian writer Ken Saro-Wiwa, an environmental and human rights activist who was executed in the ’90s on what many consider drummed up murder charges. One of lawyers involved in helping to bring more facts behind the execution of Saro-Wiwa is Jennie Green, a staff attorney for the Center for Constitutional Rights (www.ccrjustice.org). Ms. Green specializes in international human rights and for three years was the administrative director of Harvard Law School’s Human Rights Program.
