Human Rights Day: Lessons from Uganda

Human Rights Day: Lessons from Uganda

L-R: Thom Feroah, Victor Ochen, W. A. Schmidt and Rev. Fr. John Brian at the Wisconsin Capitol
Even though Human Rights Day is over, there is wonderful information on the visit to Wisconsin by Victor Ochen of the African Youth Initiative Network, including audio from Jean Feraca's show and from his talk at Lowell Hall. I was honored to meet Victor Ochen along with W.A. Schmidt, Chair of the Governor’s Commission on the United Nations, and Thom Feroah of the Underwood Foundation and the founder of the recently created Center for Global Health and Peacebuilding (sponsor of Victor's trip and the photo exhibitions and film screenings) at the Capitol Celebration of Interfaith Awareness Week on Friday.
