A local chapter of Amnesty International is working to protect human rights on the Montana Western campus.
The Montana Western Amnesty Club was founded by Eve Malo, Ph.D., who is also the state coordinator for Amnesty International. Malo was a recipient of the Montana Governor's Humanities Award last year for her work with Amnesty International.
This club meets regularly to discuss such issues as violence, poverty, the death penalty, immigrants, refugees and global arms trade. Any student concerned about human rights should consider joining the Montana Western Amnesty club. Meetings are held once a month. Please contact Eric Wright at for more information.
