This summer, Rebecca Rosefelt, a law student at the University of Minnesota, is our legal intern. Rebecca is spending her summer in Ciudad Juárez and Chihuahua city interviewing detained teenagers, helping present workshops on prisoner rights to teens and families, and conducting research on international standards for juvenile detention.

“I am really excited to help develop tools to prevent unnecessary child detention,” said Rebecca.

Rebecca is a 2017 Human Rights Center Fellow. Thanks to the generous support of the University of Minnesota Human Rights Center Fellowship Program for sponsoring Rebecca.
