"Collaboration, pilot program could expand the Center for Victims of Torture’s work in MN"

An article at the Minnesota House of Representatives’ Session Daily, “Collaboration, pilot program could expand the Center for Victims of Torture’s work in MN,” quotes CVT’s Peter Dross, director of external relations, and Alison Beckman, senior clinician for external relations, and describes legislation in progress which would “launch a collaboration between the center and Department of Human Services.” A video of the proceedings is also posted to YouTube via MN House Info. Peter begins to speak at about 8:00 and Alison at about 9:41. **An update: The legislation advanced in the Senate Human Services Reform Finance and Policy Committee. 

Eric Schwartz, CVT board member and president of Refugees International, is quoted in an article at Roll Call, “Lawmakers from both parties resist humanitarian and refugee aid changes.”
