[Iraq Action Days] Oct. 24 Nat’l Symposium @ Rutgers Law

Dear James:


At this year’s Iraq Action Days, EPIC supporters like you came to Washington DC to urge the Bush administration and Congress to do more to help innocent Iraqis affected by the war. Among the hundreds who participated was Kevin Murphy, an Iraq War veteran and Rutgers law student who has been a passionate advocate for Iraqi refugees since his return home.

Following Iraq Action Day, Kevin Murphy went back to his campus and got to work. Today, thanks to the extraordinary efforts of Kevin and his colleagues at Rutgers, we are proud to announce the next step in bringing the urgent humanitarian crisis to the center of our national discourse on Iraq:

IRAQ AT THE CROSSROADS: Protecting Refugees,

Rescuing Our Allies, and Empowering Iraqi Law

A National Symposium at Rutgers School of Law, Newark, NJ

October 24th, 2008 (Friday), 8:30 am – 5:30 pm


This important conference will explore the plight of Iraqi refugees and internally displaced persons, the unique dangers faced by Iraqis who helped the U.S., and how existing Iraqi law can be empowered to create peace in the country. Learn from and network with fellow activists, knowledgeable experts, and organizations taking humanitarian action for peace in Iraq.

Gathering two weeks before the Presidential election, featured speakers include Iraqi Judge Ra’id Juhi of the Saddam Hussein trial, Congressman Bill Pascrell, Emily Gish of Mercy Corps, Bob Carey of International Rescue Committee, Zahir Janmohamed of Amnesty International, Sam Parker of the U.S. Institute of Peace, Kirk Johnson of the List Project, and Hilary Ingraham of the U.S. State Department.

We hope you will join us on October 24th for this powerful symposium on the Iraq Crisis. For more information please visit: http://lawrecord.typepad.com/
