Human Rights Movement Loses Prominent Defender
by LaTasha Smith, Director of Communications
Passionate Libyan human rights activist, Salwa Bughaighis, was assassinated in her home on June 25th. Her assassination was a tragic loss and a shock to many who are working tirelessly to build a society in which everyone’s rights are protected. A few hours before her death, Salwa voted in the country's second parliamentary election since the revolution, something unheard once unheard of in Libya.
The world has lost a true woman of courage in the Global Human Rights Movement. May she rest in piece.
