October events in Western Massachusetts

Amnesty International Chapters in Western Mass are getting very active this month. No wonder, since students are back to this Students Hub and many college chapters are waking up from Summer Hibernation!

Our Chapter is in the mid of this events. Our weekly tabling continues to be a success bringing many activists together to get updates from the active members of AI-128 who facilitate the table.
We are looking forward to the monthly meeting to finalize the Human Rights Day activities.

We also are part of the Student and Local Chapters training event scheduled for 10/26 (next Sat) at Mount Holyoke College.

Our active member (at Large), Attorney Abdelrahman Gasim is a major contributor to our Chapter Facebook page. He almost daily updates the page with human rights news from Kampala, Uganda where he' stationed. Thankd Mr. Gasim!
