Conversation on Community
Richard Longworth, senior fellow of The Chicago Council on Global Affairs and an expert on globalization's impact on the Midwest, spoke with WMUK in Kalamazoo leading up to his participation on the September 11 "Albion Tomorrow" panel discussion.
'Invisible Children' Presents Ugandan Plight
A Ugandan civil war survivor tells her personal story to an Albion audience as part of a presentation by Invisible Children to the Albion community. The program will be held Wednesday, October 10, at 7 p.m. in the Norris Center Towsley Hall, near the corner of East Michigan and Hannah Streets.
Along with Mary Nume's firsthand account of Uganda's war and use of child soldiers, Invisible Children shows their brand-new documentary, "Move," giving an update on the civil war and the plight of children fleeing the war. The organization will also bring merchandise supporting their cause and will provide an optional "get involved" workshop following the 30-minute film.
"There are a lot of Christians on campus who are passionate about human rights," said student organizer Emily Walker. "This is one way we're trying to help Albion become more aware and learn what we can do to solve a global problem."
Invisible Children is a nonprofit organization that raises awareness and promotes healthcare, safety, employment and education for the people of Northern Uganda. For more information, visit www.invisiblechildren.com.
