Temple Law & Public Policy Scholar Christina Gilfillan '14
has been named a Rising Star by Golden Rule International (GRI), an
affiliate of the United Nations and other international
organizations that seeks to recognize individuals and organizations
whose work exemplifies the "Golden Rule" of compassion and treating
others as you wish to be treated yourself.
Rising Star awards are given to young adults who have worked to
promote social justice and compassionate change in their respective
fields. Christina is being honored for her work promoting
positive change in human trafficking laws and education. GRI
is not the first organization to recognize the significance of
Christina's contributions; in the wake of her presentation at the
Law and Society Association's annual conference in Boston last
summer, Christina was invited to present her work at the European
Society of Criminology's annual conference (Eurocrim) in Budapest,
Hungary in September 2013.
Christina will receive her award on April 4th at the
Gerald R. Ford Presidential Library.
