Join our Letter Writing Campaign!

"The simple act of licking a stamp and writing a letter to those who abuse human right, if carried by thousands of people, add up to massive international pressure. Your words can intimidate those responsible and force them to stop acts of cruelty. Together we have the power to change regimes." -Amnestyinternational.org _______________________________________________________________________

A New Trimester..A New Topic!

After a lot of planning this trimester we are excited to focus on Guantanamo Bay during spring term.

This years marks the 10th anniversary of the opening of the Guantanamo Bay detention camp. The detention of prisoners in Guantanamo Bay violates international law and human rights laws, however, the news media seems to have lost interest in covering the issue. We want to remind people that prisoners in Guantanamo Bay are still being tortured and detained indefinitely under OUR government's jurisdiction! We should all take action!
