The pandemic has shown a number of inequalities within underserved populations. So, during a year like 2020, people came to realize the importance of our basic human rights. Human Rights Day is commemorated in December every year. This year, ASEZ hosted a webinar to honor this day during such a unique time. Students invited professors and community leaders to share their knowledge and expertise on the importance of human rights. In the end, ASEZ student volunteers pledged to remain advocates for the human rights of all people.
ASEZ WAO volunteers removed 130 bags of trash from the Heritage Trail in Middletown, NY. State Senator Jennifer Metzger and State Assemblywoman Aileen Gunther both attended the cleanup in support of ASEZ WAO’s Take Action Project.
