  • “If the Governor of California can recognize redemption by commuting the sentences of 70 people, including several who were convicted of violent crime, then so, too, should the Governor of New York.”

    The Criminal Defense Clinic at the CUNY School of Law, along with its Director Prof Steve Zeidman quoted above, is currently helping 25 people with their clemency applications.

  • “My fellowship let me split my 1L summer between working locally, with the NY Attorney General’s Office assisting low-wage workers, and working globally, in New Delhi, India as a Sorensen Fellow. My work at Breakthrough Trust allowed me to research international human rights laws and collaborate with activists working to tackle gender-based violence within communities and in courts across Northern India.”

  • We had an impressive turnout for the pop-up launch of the Sorensen Center’s series of conversations with United Nations Special Rapporteurs on October 22!

    Sorensen Center Founding ED Camille Massey, Center for Constitutional Rights Attorney Katie Gallagher, and UN Special Rapporteur Michael Lynk discussed the report UNSR Lynk presented to the UN analyzing the question of annexation and examining its relevant legal frameworks. CUNY Law students asked questions following SR Lynk’s talk about a number of human rights concerns in the West Bank, including East Jerusalem, and in Gaza, which led to long discussion and debate.

  • A year ago, we, along with the NYC Commission On Human Rights, hosted the first public hearing in NYC on #sexualharassment in over 40 years.

    People are still testifying.
    #MeToo is working.

    And as we evolve, we must learn that if you uphold the gender binary, you don't believe survivors.

  • Marcy Wheeler focuses on beats like information warfare and surveillance, where accuracy can sometimes mean the difference between a scoop and a prison sentence.

    She has convincingly marshalled the public record to argue that CIA director Gina Haspel likely edited herself out of tapes documenting the prolonged torture of Abd al-Rahim al-Nashiri, and written with precision about the corruption of many in and around the Trump administration by foreign interests, especially Russia.

    Read more about the public records investigations that are changing how the world sees forensic journalism.
