Amnesty International Conflict Free Campus Initiative

In solidarity with Amnesty's opposition to human rights abuses by armed groups, Samford's chapter of Amnesty International will be showing a video series, "Hope in the Congo", to show students the damage these armned groups cause and what activists are doing to oppose their influence.

We will also be having speakers in between clips and at the end of the series. After all the videos have been shown, we will have an optional petition students can sign indicating their wish to make Samford technology updates conflict free, meaning when Samford University buys new technology, the profits will not go to armed groups funded by minerals integral to technology.

Event time: 8:15
