Human Rights Fair to Illuminate Local, Global Issues

Franklin & Marshall's inaugural Human Rights Awareness Week kicks off Monday with the Human Rights Information Fair in the atrium of the Steinman College Center.

The fair will be open Nov. 2 to Nov. 6 between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. each day. Representatives from a variety of campus organizations will host tables where students may ask questions and learn how to become involved in human rights issues.

"The fair is intended to be a resource for students who have been made aware of serious issues locally and globally," says Lewie Briggs '11, who leads the human rights effort along with Bryan Dougan '11. "Included in the fair will be volunteer opportunities, fundraisers, study abroad opportunities and other information relating to human rights from the perspective of different groups."

The Office of International Programs, InterVarsity Christian Fellowship and Ware Institute for Civic Engagement will host tables at the fair, in addition to several other groups.

Students may also stop by the fair to see the list of events taking place each day during Human Rights Awareness Week, which includes a series of speakers and discussions. Monday's lineup features a film screening of The Visitor at 7:30 p.m. in the atrium. The film explores a lonely man's experience with identity, immigration and cross-cultural communication in post-9/11 New York City.
