Mario Williams was a panel speaker on the recent “Media, Black Manhood, Racial Violence, and Social Justice” program for the inaugural John Lewis Fellows program with Humanity in Action (HIA), in partnership with the National Center for Civil and Human Rights (NCCHR).
The John Lewis Fellowship is a collaborative, human rights focused educational program for American and European university students and recent graduates that is bringing together a leading international educational organization, HIA and NCCHR, a cultural institution that connects the American Civil Rights Movement to broader international human rights movements. With HIA and NCCHR, the fellowship aims to explore diversity, human rights, and social justice and tasks the fellows with using their knowledge for the common good in their respective communities and countries.
Mr. Williams has spent most of his life involved in human rights work and is currently a partner at the law firm of Williams Oinonen LLC. The law firm of Williams Oinonen LLC is proud to be a supporter of the John Lewis Fellows Program, the National Center for Civil and Human Rights, and Congressman John Lewis. The law firm was privileged to serve the Congressman as their client, providing opponent research and campaign strategy during last election campaign season.
