An Important Educational Weekend

    Last weekend, several Thacher students attended the Amnesty International Western Regional Conference in Los Angeles. When I spoke with Liam Carpenter-Urquhart, he described the conference enthusiastically, “I was inspired by the passion of all of the speakers and people I met at the Amnesty International Western Regional Conference.” The students listened to the Executive Director of Amnesty International speak about the future of the organization and established important connections for the Thacher club. A particularly emotional moment was when Lhamo Tso, wife of Tibetan film maker Dhondup Wangchen, spoke about how her husband was unjustly imprisoned by the Chinese government. The weekend was an important learning experience for all who attended.
