Writing for our Rights!

Writing for Our Rights! Writers and Activists in Support of Civil Rights
January 25-26, 2003, Rutgers Newark Campus, Newark, NJ

This conference this weekend is open to everyone. And it's just a stone's throw from my apartment!

[From the website]: The headlines say it all: There is a massive assault on civil rights in the United States, unparalleled since the days of McCarthyism and Jim Crow. Thousands are being targeted for their religion or for their political views, detained indefinitely without charges or even killed. We will not stand by and let our fundamental civil rights be destroyed. The NJ Local of the National Writers Union (UAW Local 1981), together with other organizations, is hosting a conference of Middle Eastern, South Asian and Muslim-American writers to discuss with other writers and activists how to collectively respond to the attack on civil rights both overseas and domestically.
