Amnesty International is a nonpartisan student organization that works together to engage the UR community on international human rights issues. President and senior Penni Spicer has been tabling in Wilson Commons for their upcoming event Invisible Children. The event brings to Rochester an organization that serves young Ugandans who are threatened with abduction from their villages, being forced into war. Over 2 million children have been displaced over the past 20 years in the civil war-torn country.
Next Monday’s event will include a screening of the organization’s new documentary, as well as two men who will provide firsthand accounts of the turmoil in Uganda.
