Colleen Costello, Human Rights & Anti-Terrorism Project Associate Attorney Human Rights USA.

"Before joining Human Rights USA, Colleen refined her skills as a human rights advocate through her participation in two Amnesty International chapters that she founded and directed. In 2002, she was the recipient of an Amnesty International Patrick Stewart Human Rights Scholarship, a coveted award which supports activists in gaining practical experience in the field. Through this grant, she was able to observe sessions of the U.N. Working Group on Indigenous Populations and the U.N. Sub-Committee for Human Rights at the United Nations in Geneva, Switzerland, while also liasing with representatives of indigenous populations from around the world and learning about their efforts to protect their populations. Colleen received her J.D. from Pennsylvania State University, Dickinson School of Law." [1]
