Letter to Obama

In March 2009 dozens of 'human rights groups' and activists in the United States, signed a statement urging President Barack Obama to rethink his decision to boycott the United Nations-sponsored anti-racism conference.

Individual signers of the statement included Lisa Crooms of the Howard University School of Law.[4]
