Clinton to Pick Human Rights Activist as Assistant Secretary of State

This is good news. Via RH Reality Check, we learn that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton intends to name Michael Posner, the current president of Human Right First, as Assistant Secretary of State.
Posner has a 30-year history involved in human rights work, with a focus on refugees’ rights, the protection of and justice for torture victims as well as strengthening accountability for war crimes. He also helped found the Fair Labor Association, which promotes corporate accountability for working conditions in the apparel industry.
You can check out his bio here, but all in all, this dude seems too good to be true. And for that, HRC is our homegirl today.
