ASU's Educating for Justice chapter hosts film
Join the revolution for justice. All over the world, political leaders kill, torture, or "disappear" civilians, and often these leaders evade responsibility for their crimes against humanity. The Amnesty International documentary film "Justice without Borders" will be presented Tuesday, Nov. 27, at 5 p.m. in the Osage Room of the Student Union. Refreshments will be provided, as will opportunities for action. This event is funded by the SGA Action Fund and hosted by the ASU Chapter of Educating for Justice. For details, contact Kristin Walker.
