Amnesty International Club Makes A Difference

Amnesty International Club strives to educate the community about issues not necessarily known, but should be known. In the 2013-14 school year, headed by seniors Ebrahem Farooqui and Alex Chen, this club is fairly new and just getting off its feet. Perfect time to join, right?

Amnesty International is an organization that focuses on the human rights movement, and has spread around the world. Every member of this global movement has a chance to fight the injustice in this world, and now the students of SMHS have that chance too.

Since the birth of this club was fairly recent, they focus on educating the members using a PowerPoint provided by the organization, as well as instructional packets. They brainstorm ways to take action, such as writing letters to support people who are deprived of their rights, as well as letters to the people who have captured them (if that’s the case) to free them.

When asked about his mission statement, Ebrahem says, “At Amnesty International club, we discuss, debate, and take action against any human rights issues and conflicts that take place around the globe in an effort to make a difference as students.”

They meet Tuesdays at lunch in Mr. Pirie’s room, A206, so be sure to check it out.
