Mohegan To Host Reception And Participates In Human Rights Conference

Feather News


The Mohegan Tribe's director of environment protection, Jean McGinnis, will join an international forum on human rights in Pennsylvania and the Tribe's racetrack-slot parlor in Pennsylvania will host a reception for the group.

In addition to Jean, other speakers are to include Michael G. Kozak, senior director for democracy and human rights at the National Security Council and officials from 20 countries.

A goal of the conference is to advocate for human rights and religious freedom laws worldwide. The Washington D.C.-based Institute on Religion and Public Policy is hoping that the annual Interparliamentary Conference on Human Rights and Religious Freedom can continue to be held in Pennsylvania's city of Scranton.
