The topic was human rights at a University of Maine lecture earlier today, the first in a internationally-focused lecture series.
CISV USA's Maine chapter welcomed El-Fadel Arbab, a survivor of the Sudanese genocide.
Arbab escaped from Darfur when he was 12.
He now lives in Portland, working there as an advocate to end the Sudanese atrocities.
CISV Maine's next UMaine lectue is scheduled for the 2013 Spring semester.
