The Scholars at Risk Advocacy Seminar is a residential student organization that meets
bi-weekly to research and advocate on behalf of an international scholar who has been
unfairly imprisoned. Advocacy seminars are being held throughout the U.S. and in Europe,
and in March, IWU students go to Washington, D.C., where they meet fellow students,
and present their findings before House of Representative and Senate office staff
members. Incarcerated scholars whose cases our students have recently researched have
come from China, Iran, Thailand, Angola, and Russia. Organizations like Amnesty International
and Scholars at Risk will always be a light shining into the darkness to give hope
to those who do not have any.
If students would like to get involved, there are many ways to do so. To join Scholars
at Risk, one must simply show up at one of the meetings which are held every other
Wednesday in State Farm Hall 108 at 4pm. To get more information, email Professor
Munro at email@example.com. Other ways to get involved include following organizations
like Amnesty International to be aware of new cases and potential letter writing campaigns.
