Please join the Human Rights Working Group and Whitney M.

There will be a reading of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) in which each article of the document will be read aloud by someone is in his or her own language. Afterward, the ISHR Advocates will speak about articles of the UDHR that are relevant to the work that they do all over the world. The floor will then be open to students to discuss articles of particular importance to them. We will also provide students with the opportunity to write letters as part of Amnesty International's Write for Rights Campaign.
