Sen. Russ Feingold to Speak
On Human Rights at UW-Eau Claire

MAILED: Dec. 4, 2002

         EAU CLAIRE —The University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire Chapter of Amnesty International is hosting U.S. Sen. Russell Feingold for a Human Rights Day forum at 7 p.m. Thursday, Dec.12, in Schofield Auditorium.
         As a member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, Feingold works to make human rights concerns a higher priority in U.S. foreign policy. The Humans Rights Day forum is an annual event held to honor the adoption of the United Nations Declaration of Human Rights and the founding of Amnesty International. Feingold will speak on “The Importance of Human Rights Since September 11th.” The forum will be followed by a short reception.
         Feingold was first elected to the U.S. Senate in 1992. In 1998, after keeping his historic pledge to limit his campaign spending to $1 per voter, and disallowing party soft money from being spent on his behalf, Feingold won a second term.
         The event is free and open to the public. For more information, contact UW-Eau Claire Amnesty International president Trever Hagen at hagentt@uwec.edu or organization adviser Rita Webb at (715) 836-3259.
