STUDENTS:  A century old proverb said that “the pen is mightier than the sword.” Now is your chance to put power into your writing with Voice For the Nameless’s Write For Rights event. Stop by the LRC during your free period on Thursday, December 15th to write to one or more of the seven people who are victims of unjust imprisonment, harassment and torture, and we may see justice come, as we have seen in the past, with your own letters. It will be held in the front part of the LRC, near the fireplace, so bring your friends, write some letters, and maybe you can be the cause of justice.
