Minnesota Advocates for Human Rights
Liberia TRC Project in Atlanta

Mirroring the TRC’s work in Liberia, Minnesota Advocates for Human Rights has a formal Memorandum of Understanding with the TRC to conduct statement taking from Liberians living throughout the United States. Working in collaboration with Minnesota Advocates, Atlanta Friends of the Liberian TRC is a voluntary association of individuals and groups from the Atlanta community that will assist those Liberians in metro Atlanta who voluntarily come forward to tell their stories to the TRC. Individuals who give statements will have access to counselors, immigration lawyers, and social service referrals.  Information from interviews will be included in the TRC’s historical record.

Atlanta Friends of the Liberian TRC will begin taking statements in the early summer, and will finish taking statements in December 2007. The Project was piloted in Minnesota and will be extended to other parts of the U.S. depending on the financial, material and human resource capacity available.
