Meet Lu Jun, Human Rights Lawyer from China
The raid on the office of a group that advocates for people with hepatitis comes at a precarious time for China’s civil society groups.
Along with the New York Office United States Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), we are pleased to host Lu Jun, a distinguished human rights lawyer from China in a visit to the EEOC on June 12, 2014 from 1:30 pm to 3:30 pm.
Mr. Lu Jun is the Chief Coordinator of Beijing Yirenping Center (“Center for Promotion of Equality and Mercy “), a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting social justice and public well-being in China.
Yirenping offers education on communicable disease prevention and control, provides community outreach and assistance for patients, and works to eliminate discrimination. Mr. Lu is best known in China for his advocacy on behalf of carriers of hepatitis B virus (HBV), for which he has won recognition in China, Hong Kong, Italy, and elsewhere.
During this visit, Lu Jun will make a presentation to EEOC employee and AABANY members about his work in China.
After his presentation, lawyers knowledgeable about the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB), New York State Attorney General’s Office, and the US EEOC will present on how rights of employees are (or not) enforced in the United States.
