A group of Windsor High School students are reaching beyond reading, writing, and mathematics this semester by exploring human rights and the ongoing crisis in Darfur.

In a letter promoting their event Thursday, Jan. 31, the group said their Human Rights class “removed us from the comfort of our society and placed us face to face with the reality of our planet and hate and darkness that exists both subtly and openly.”

The students said they understand that if they aren’t part of the solution, they’re part of the problem. So they did what they could to draw attention to the problems in the Sudan by creating a film titled, “The Message,” that will be shown as part of Thursday’s event, which also includes a panel discussion.

The film and discussion will be from 7 to 9 p.m., Thursday, Jan. 31, in the Windsor High School auditorium. For more information about the event, read their news release.
