Hello Professor Nelson,
I am a member of Wesleyan’s Amnesty International chapter, and I wanted to let you and your Africa in World Politics class know about an exciting event that we are holding next Tuesday, the 13th that we think you may be interested in.
We are welcoming back to campus representatives from the organization Invisible Children, a group committed to working with, for, and on behalf of child soldiers in Central Africa. We hosted a successful event with them last Spring, and hope to draw an even larger audience this time. They will be showing their new documentary, entitled “The Rescue” (you can see a trailer here: http://www.invisiblechildren.com/videos/3946581) and leading a discussion and question-and-answer session about their important work. WesAmnesty will be providing free food.
The event will take place at 6PM on September 13th in Exley 150. We would greatly appreciate it if you would mention this event to your students and consider coming yourself – based on their presentation last year we know that they deliver extremely a hard-hitting and thought-provoking message.
All the best and hope to see you there,
