April 28 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
ON the 71st anniversary of the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights (1948) Jim Phillips will consider whether there is or should be a human right to health care, education, housing, food, employment, transportation, a healthy environment, the right to join a union and equal access to the political process. This question is central to the political debates of our times.

He was President of the American Civil Liberties Union, Wichita Chapter, and Chairman of the Legal Redress Committee of the Wichita NAACP in the 1980’s.
