Colin Gonsalves Speaks to Suas Trinity and Trinity FLAC
Suas and FLAC are delighted to announce that Colin Gonsalves will be speaking to Suas Trinity and Trinity FLAC next Monday!
Mr Gonsalves is a Senior Advocate in the Supreme Court of India and founder of the Human Rights Law Network, a network of over 200 lawyers spread across India, that is dedicated to representing vindicating the rights of the poor and marginalised. Their work has revolutionised many aspects of the Indian legal system, including prompting sweeping reform of child protection legislation, through the Juvenile Justice Act, 2000.
Mr Gonsalves has been at the forefront of all HRLN's work since its inception. His first case was to represent 5,000 workers who had been excluded from their jobs, while he was still in law school!
He has been the recipient of many awards, including an Honorary Doctorate from Middlesex University.
Over last two decades, he has played a prominent role in investigating, monitoring, and documenting human rights violations, generating “know your rights” material, and conducting training seminars and workshops for lawyers, activists, judges, and government officials including police and civic administrators.
So, join us in the GMB at 5pm on Monday, 25th January! Come early to avoid dissapointment!
Much love, Suas and FLAC xoxo
