Because I am Oromo – The Untold Stories of Oromo Political Prisoners

Dear Human Rights Center friends,

You are invited to join the Human Rights Center today on Saturday, February 28, 2015, from 2:30 – 5:30 p.m. in Room 25 Mondale Hall (the Law School) as we host a dynamic event on human rights conditions in Ethiopia, highlighting the particular situation of Oromo political prisoners, which has been the subject of UN and Amnesty International investigations.

Twin Cities-based Oromo human rights activists are eager to engage with the broader University of Minnesota and Twin Cities human rights communities, so please join us this weekend.

Culture and Child Exploitation

Humphrey Fellow Aneeta Aahooja is currently a Child Protection Officer at the Child Protection Unit of UNICEF-Balochistan in Pakistan. She is responsible for the implementation of children’s and women’s protection initiatives in the province through advocacy, monitoring, and advising on legislation and policy. During the past 5 years, she has worked closely with hundreds of children who were abused sexually or forced to perform intensive labor, and has made miracles happen in these children’s lives. On February 3, Ms. Aahooja will be sharing with us some stories that are close to her heart. She will lead us to think about what we, as individuals and part of a society, can do to end child exploitation in the world.
