The Human Rights Institute invites you to the final talk in our series on the 20 year anniversary of the Sale v. Haitian Centers Council Case. Sale was one of the seminal American human rights cases of the 1990s. It changed U.S. foreign policy, spawned satellite litigation, became the subject of numerous books and articles, and inspired a generation of human rights scholars and activists. Today, two decades after the Haitian case, it is worth examining some of the many aspects of its legal legacy.
