On October 19th, Secretary Clinton held a swearing-in ceremony for Michael Posner, who was sworn in as the Assistant Secretary of State for Democracy, Human Rights and Labor. Mike Posner has dedicated his life to fighting for a better world.  He spent over two decades (serving as its President and as Executive Director) at Human Rights First, the non-profit, nonpartisan international human rights organization whose mission is to protect people at risk around the world. He co-founded the Fair Labor Association, an organization that brings together corporations, local leaders, universities, and NGOs to promote corporate accountability for working conditions in the apparel industry. He also co-founded, along with Yahoo! and other stakeholders, the Global Network Initiative, which protects and advances freedom of expression in the Internet, communications and technology sector.
