Nahal Zamani To Present Hardy Chair Lecture

April 30, 2013

Nahal Zamani will soon present the second 2013 H. Claude Hardy Chair in Sociology Lecture. Zamani, the Advocacy and Program Manager for Center for Constitutional Rights (CCR) Government Misconduct and Racial Justice division, will share a lecture titled "Advocating for Change: Dismantling Discriminatory Policing Practices/Dismantling Stop and Frisk."

The event will take place at 7 p.m. on Monday, May 6 in the Anderson Center for the Arts Theatre on the Hartwick College campus.

Zamani coordinates CCR's domestic human rights advocacy campaigns and initiatives, through which she challenges unjust and inhuman prison conditions, works to dismantle discriminatory policing policies, and stands up for economic and social justice. Before joining the CCR in 2010, she worked with the American Civil Liberties Union Human Rights Program, where she developed domestic human rights advocacy campaigns. Zamani graduated from Rutgers University and is pursuing her master's degree in human rights at Columbia University.

H. Claude Hardy, the first chair of Hartwick College's Sociology Department, generously endowed Hartwick College with a fund to establish a lecture series in his memory. He left instructions that the speakers must be able to connect their studies of academic matters with information of interest to the contemporary community. This event is sponsored by the Department of Sociology's Hardy Chair Fund.
