In recognizing the humanity of our fellow beings, we pay ourselves the highest tribute.
-Justice Thurgood Marshall
The LIBRE Fellowship is established in the spirit of Justice Thurgood Marshall. His relentless advocacy for defending the voiceless American led him to argue numerous cases such as state-sponsored discrimination, and the notable Supreme Court landmark case of Brown v. Board of Education. As Libre Fellows, participants work on large-scale, modern day issues and inequities which continue to plague the voiceless and minority.
