Res Students Participate in Human Rights Campaign
In December 2016, all Resurrection junior and senior Social Science classes participated in a letter writing campaign as part of International Human Rights Day and sponsored by the United Nations. Letters were written to world leaders urging protection of Human Rights, citing five specific situations and individual women who have been identified by Amnesty International as victims of human rights abuses.
Specifically, letters were written to the President of Malawi, demanding protection of people with albinism from attempted murder and abduction; to Turkey's Minister of Justice, asking for laws to be repealed that stifle people's right to freedom of expression; to the Prime Minister of Canada, urging a halt on the construction of the Site C dam and to respect and protect the rights of Indigenous peoples in the Peace River Valley; to Peru's Minister of the Interior, asking for protection for a peasant farmer in northern Peru who has faced harassment and intimidation over land ownership in a legal battle with gold and copper mines; and to the Head of the Judiciary in Iran, urging him to allow medical care and swift release to a political activity working to empower Iran's ethnic minority Kurds.
Resurrection Social Science Department Chair Marianne Boe, J.D., explained, "This is the second year our department has been involved and we have tripled the number of classes participating. Last year's campaign by Amnesty International had several success stories, including new laws in Burkina Faso prohibiting the former custom of marrying off girls as young as 11 and 12. At Resurrection, I always remind students that 'real women speak up.' Our students feel very empowered when they can see that by speaking up, real women make a difference."
