After class this evening I had a late dinner meeting at Volcano Joe's with a UH student, Aleina Hammonds
, who said agreed to serve as Chair of our UH Student Chapter
of Amnesty International
. I am very happy that she will take that up. She seems like a good leader. We have a few people on campus who are interested, but it takes a combination of leadership and time to commit to making a difference. We will schedule our first meeting of the semester very soon.
In related "news," I was pleased that all of our Washington legislators (Senators Inouye and Akaka and Congress members Abercrombie and Case) sent very kind letters in support of our efforts last year to support the McCain anti-Torture Bill. Check out this
if you have time.
