Joshua Rubenstein: New England’s heroic human rights defender
Too often, we wait for someone to die before we celebrate his or her life achievements. When it comes to the human rights movement, many important voices are never celebrated at all. So it was inspiring to see Joshua Rubenstein – very much alive and well – honored last week at the Armenian Heritage Foundation’s annual human rights lecture. For the past 37 years, Rubenstein has worked tirelessly on behalf of political prisoners around the world.
