A VOICE FOR THE
VOICELESS - 5/1/06
More than a thousand people,
including 50 students from Trinity's social justice chapter, gave up the
comforts of home to point out a travesty overseas. The group took part
in the Global Night Commute, Saturday, April 29, in downtown Chicago, Illinois.
The group endured constant
rain and cold temperatures; demanding the U.S. government put an end to
child abduction and the need for night commuting in a dangerous part of
the world: northern Uganda.
"This event is not the end,"
said Allison Backous '07, "but only the beginning of the fight for the
children in Uganda. The fact that we sat there in the rain and cold just
shows the maturity level of Trinity students." Backous chairs the social
justice chapter at Trinity.
