On November 22nd, CSUbuntu, SIB, U-Globe, and ACHN will host an exciting lecture!

Join us for a lecture that will be given by Susan Kigula.

Susan is a Ugandan human rights activist who’s fight for justice lead to the curbing of the death penalty in Uganda.

Susan herself spent several years on death row after being wrongfully convicted and during her detention she graduated high school and was allowed to study law at the University of London, from which she graduated as well. With this new knowledge and with the help of foreign activists she filed a lawsuit against the state of Uganda on behalf of 418 death row inmates. This led to the reviewing of all death sentences, therefore, saving the lives of many convicts. Since her own release in 2016 she continues to fight against the death penalty.
