Aida Berio (SFS ‘52) Fought for Racial Justice

In 1978, a Puerto Rican woman made headlines for filing a lawsuit for racial discrimination in the Washington, D.C. District Court against the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, where she had worked since 1971. That woman was Aida Berio, who graduated from the School of Foreign Service in 1952.
