Respect for Life and Human Dignity

Southwestern New York - Respect for Life and Human Dignity

Join us on November 7, 2012 from 4:30-8:30pm at the Robert H. Jackson Center for a conference on Humanitarian Law. This conference will include information on the Exploring Humanitarian Law (EHL) curriculum offered by the American Red Cross. In addition, speakers on various subjects involving Humanitarian Law will be scheduled to appear. Participants will hear speakers on various subjects involving Humanitarian Law, Justice Jackson, and Nuremberg–all with classroom-ready activities for teachers to immediately use. Also, materials will be shared for how to teach about the conflict in Syria, highlighted by a live conversation with Ammar Abdulhamid, a leading Syrian human rights and pro-democracy activist. An important focus at the event will be how the EHL program works with New York State Common Core Standards.

Cost to attend is $10.00, which includes your meal for the evening (catered by Elegant Edibles) and the EHL Educational Manual . To register, visit our registration page, or contact the Southwestern NY Chapter of the American Red Cross at 716-664-5115. Register by November 2, 2012!
