Amnesty International in midst of planning for Night of Rights


The human rights club Amnesty International will host its next meeting on March 3 at 3:15 p.m. in Room C128. According to Jennifer Davis, sponsor and art department chairperson, the club usually meets every Gold Wednesday.

An important event the club has already started to map out is the annual Nights of Rights day.

“We talked about possible dates, info about possible bands, Chipotle for sponsoring food and other possible food and beverages,” Davis said.

The date for the event is currently up in the air. Boeglin said that the club is currently trying to work out a date and time with the school. Last year it was held on a Saturday evening down at the stadium.

According to Boeglin, Night of Rights is mainly an awareness event, but the fundraising goal of the event is yet to be finalized. The club has also yet to decide its third campaign of the year.

Also, senior Kate Haldrup and senior Eric van Scoik are in charge of finding and organizing the bands for entertainment on that night.

The club will continue to work out the fine details of the event at its next meeting. By Steven Chen <[email protected]>
