In partnership with The Office of New York State Assemblyman Nader Sayegh, District Attorney David Soares, and distinguished faculty members from various Universities, ASEZ (Save the Earth from A to Z) volunteers hosted a virtual forum to commemorate the UN Human Rights Day. University students from Lehman College, SUNY Albany, Old Dominion, and Tufts University worked in conjunction to coordinate this powerful event. This virtual forum is one of many efforts being carried out throughout the world by ASEZ to highlight how historic tragedies, such as the Coronavirus Pandemic, have brought about positive change in our regard for human rights for everyone.
