Ubuntu Weekly #55
- Legal questions surrounding the First Amendment, self-defense, and other issues were the focus at our last Commission meeting. We were grateful for the expertise of NCCU Law Professor Irv Joyner, his student assistant Angelica Reza Wind, and Lisa Magarrell of the International Center for Transitional Justice.
- A collection of DVDs from our three public hearings is now available for sale, with proceeds going toward our remaining fundraising needs. Click here to order (and encourage other individuals and organizations to do the same).
- Volunteer of the Week: Dr. Bill Gentry, a postdoctoral fellow at the Center for Creative Leadership, who analyzed all evaluations from our public hearings and other events. Thanks, Bill!
- This week’s progress indicator: We’ve set the evening for our report sharing ceremony: Thursday, May 25, 2006. Stay tuned for more details!
