The students of the Honors Seminar on Human Rights at Frostburg State University will present a Human Rights Fair Tuesday, Dec. 11, from 6 to 9 p.m. in room 201 of the Lane University Center.
The Human Rights Fair will celebrate the anniversary of the signing of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights on Dec. 10, 1948. For the students, it will also mark the completion of a semester of intensive investigation of human rights issues around the world.
The students have invited other campus groups who work on human rights issues to join the evening of presentations, displays and discussions about the statues of human rights and the role individuals can play to further their implementation.
Short presentations will be offered by the students on specific issues they have investigated. Todd Mellott, an FSU alumnus and current organizer with Amnesty International, will speak about that organization. Representatives of Sens. Barbara Mikulski and Paul Sarbanes will discuss human rights projects and deliver petition and information to the senators.
The fair is free and open to the public. FSU is committed to making all of its programs, services and activities accessible to persons with disabilities. To request accommodations through the ADA Compliance Office, call (301) 687-4102, TDD (301) 687-7955.
