Civil Liberties Advocate Kingsley Speaks Monday, February 20

SALISBURY, MD---Civil liberties advocate Joanne E. Kingsley speaks on human rights violations in South Darfur, Sudan, 7 p.m. Monday, February 20, in the Ritual Room of Salisbury University’s Scarborough Student Leadership Center.

Darfur has been characterized by leaders as the one of the worst humanitarian areas in the world, where genocide and other practices violate human rights.

After 18 years in the computer industry, Kingsley decided to focus on human rights issues professionally and returned to school to study international relations and human rights. In 1997 she earned her Master of Arts in international relations from the University of Delaware. She has been involved in humanitarian relief operations ever since.

Kingsley has worked in Bosnia and Kosovo on several occasions, as well as East Timor (in Southeast Asia), Afghanistan and Darfur. She most recently spent nine months in South Darfur as a protection officer with an international non-governmental organization.

Sponsored by SU’s chapter of Amnesty International, her talk is free and the public is invited. For more information call 410-543-6030 or visit the SU Web site at www.salisbury.edu. "
